Sounds like pretty normal Amazon behavior to me. My WFA
liked to sit on my head as well, I have been training her to
stay on her playstand. She is pretty good at entertaining
herself, she is probably testing her limits, kind of like a
two year old...as least that's what I've heard, don't have
kids so can't compare by first hand knowledge.
I also rotate her toys rather than just adding new ones all
the time. This seems to work for her. My WFA is 17 months
I am sure there are many people who have much more
experience than I. I believe I have read that when Amazons
are bored they scream a lot.
Hope this helps.
