Same here. My DS is 9 months old and very similar. He acts as if he wants to be held and carried, but then squirms to be put down, then whines and stares at me. Sometimes he'll even crawl around exploring while sort of whining and crying. I think a lot of it is boredom. When he's outside, he's great. He loves going new places and watching new people and things. Does your DD like this? I know I stay sane during the day by taking lots of short walks with him, and going somewhere interesting, like (yuck) a mall or the library or a playground.

Babyproofing an area is a good idea, even if it's a small room. A toy swap also works well, if you have a good friend that you can swap with for a couple days. My DS got really interested in a whole bunch of new toys.
