Tough baby boy...

I have some really strong willed kids and this little boy is no exception. He knows what he wants and he will fight until he gets it! Recently he started hitting and mostly hitting me. I have tried telling him "no we don't hit that's naughty". That didn't' stop, I think he likes the attention he was getting even if it's negative. I thought I would try ignoring when he hits and that didn't help either.
Has anyone else had a 15 month old baby try to beat them up and if so what did you do? Do you think he's too young for a time out? Maybe I should try that option but where do I put him for a time out? It seems like his crib is the only place that wouldn't get destroyed if I left him there.
I love this boy to pieces and probably baby him a little too much. He is my last baby and he's a boy so he has me wrapped around his little finger!
And no I don't let him eat crayons only red ones!

I think the bestthing to do is to tell him no in a gentle way or ignore it. They learn what pushes our buttons and like you said, get attention even if it is negative. I swear the girls call each other bad, because one time I made a big deal out of them saying it and now they do it because they know they can get attention and it bugs each other and me. I did that with Haley when she started saying stupid and I made an issue of it, and from that moment on it was stupid everything to get a reaction and if other people said it, it was such a big deal. Anyways, sorry that was long, but that's my take on it. Easier said than done...always
