    I don't know what the colloquial for this trick is.

    This one at the beginning:

    [youtube]AN2es999OzE[/youtube]

    She is not doing the 'issue' in that video- this started this week.

    What Summer is doing now is she is hitting my right knee and jumping off that vs actually running around me. The left arm jump is fine but the right she is launching off my knee (and often at my head!). I think she's overly excited but now it's a pattern and I can't seem to get her to stop launching off my knee and going back to how she's doing the trick in the video.

    help?

    Don't sit cross-legged. Kneel.

    I had a similar issue with head-launching while I sat like you were. The moment I tucked my feet away the behaviour got much cleaner.

    Such a simple solution! And yet I promise you I'd never have thought of it on my own...
