We've got a biter!

Ellie is in a biting phase.  Neither of the other girls went through this, so it is completely new to me.  She loves to bite anyone her size...friends, strangers at the store, etc.  Her most favorite bite victim is her best friend Bailee.  Poor Bailee has been the recipient of Ellie's chomping on quite a few occasions.  Bailee now screams whenever Ellie gets in close proximity to her.  Here is Ellie going for her buddy Jackson's arm.  We rescued him before any damage occurred. 

How do you discipline a 15 month old for biting?  If I catch her in the act it is easy to correct the behavior.  But, as often happens, I don't get to her until I hear a nearby baby start screaming.  She is too young to remember that what she did 15 seconds ago was wrong.  It's a tough stage...hopefully we grow out of it soon!
