My 16 month old LOVES to do that. Luckily so far she keeps her balance. When she is this young, I just lay the cushions on the floor so she has a soft landing IF she does get too excited. IF you don't want her to do that, then you just have to cosntantly redirect her. And at 14 months, she may not get it for a while. If you don't mind that she's doing that right now, just make it safe for her. Im sure I'll get bashed for saying that, but why fight a losing battle? She's too young to know better. I think they are super excited that they can finally get up there on their own. Mine loves to sit in the corner of our sectional and read books. As long as they know how to get up, you just have to make sure they can safely get off.
