I have a 15 month old and feel the same. I also have a nearly 3yo and remember feeling the same. I'm hoping it will be easier in the summer, lots of running round the park. It's the inbetween bit of not happy to sit in a pushchair but not big enough to engage in things like cooking or painting (well not for more than 2 mins here anyway)

Hooray I was just about to start a thread asking if people thought I had depression. My 16 month old is really hard to please at the moment . I'm questioning my abilities as a parent because I can't do right for doing wrong !!!

could also be those dreaded teeth? I have an extremely whiny 16 month old at the moment and turns out he has 3 molars crowning at once which explains a lot .... and if their molars are already through the incisors are usually just around the corner. Hang on in there! I have a nearly 4 year old who is usually delightful (except when tired .... hungry ... ... ) xx
