Why Does My Cat Stand on Rear Legs and Wave Her Paws At me As I Walk By?

In the mornings when I am walking through the house the cat will run out from a corner and stand on her rear legs and start pawing at the air like she is play attacking my legs. She has never actually smacked me with her paws, its almost like she is play hunting my legs. I am just wondering if this is normal or a sign of aggression?

Not aggression at all. Your kitty is playing with you. How cute! Have a fishing pole type toy ready so you can have a few minutes of play before you go on with your day.
