I'm not in the same situation but I've found that Isobelle has changed in the last few months & is really trying to assert her independence. Everything from wanting to pour the milk into her cereal or in her cup to having sole control of the remote control. It's probably a combination of independence & attention seeking. Sorry, I don't have any advice but I hope it gets easier (& I'll be asking you for tips in 5 months!!)

Obviously no experience with siblings just yet, but sounds similar to some of the age related stuff we're going through currently with O (climbing things in living room, throwing toys, tapping me in a playful manner) ...I'd say just carry on doing what your doing and all will figure itself out in time.
I was going to say something very similar to BK! F has turned into a very independent, strong willed little person and it's bloomin' hard work at times. I'm trying not to think about what he might be like when baby arrives!

We had exactly the same situation. Isla just turned two when Maya arrived. Like you say nothing major but subtle changes. Isla loves her sister. I definitely think it's a combination of age and new sibling.

We do the naughty corner but I have to be honest and say I'm rubbish with it. I just don't have the energy right now to keep putting him back there and he knows it, he just runs away laughing!

We tried a naughty corner too. But it back fired as she enjoyed being there and did naughty things on purpose and put herself in the corner!!

O was like this but it does settle down. He ended up having a naughty step at the bottom of the stairs - was only put on after warnings - and it worked.

My toddler is behaving very similar to yours and the nursery have said she is no different to any child of that age. If she misbehaves whilst I am feeding DD2, then I do break off the feed to put DD1 on a naughty spot. She is now better behaved whilst I feed DD2. We alter where she has to sit because she was taking herself to the naughty spot, which defeated the idea.
