This happens about 20 times a day around our house right now. Both girls will be happily playing together and Anna Cate will get a sudden urge to smother Caroline in a big bear hug. She will run over to her, gritting her teeth saying, "I love you lil pluffy pluffy pluffy" (translation: I love you little Fluffy Fluffy Fluffy) and crash into her like a big wave.
We never know what to expect. Sometimes Caroline squeals with delight, but other times she has a very different reaction.
I just happened to capture this phenomenon the other day as it occurred while I was trying to get a picture of Caroline.
Look out Caroline!!
Here she comes - gritting her teeth with hands ready for attack.
A startled look of shock and dismay.
As soon as the attack occurred, it is over and she is left in tears and mad as a hornet. Oh if only pictures came with sound and you could hear how loudly this child can wail. Or maybe she is crying because it looks like a little rat ran through the back of her hair!!!
