    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 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.
