my 15 mo tells me when she needs a new diaper-- is it PL time already?!?

She doesn't use many words yet, but sometimes when she pees, and always when she poops, she comes up to me whining gibberish (and making a horrible face LOL)and pats her diaper. DD1 trained at 22 months and was done by 2, but she never told me she needed a new dipe --though we used sposies with her.
Is this just normal for CD babies? Does your LO do this too? I'm wondering if it could possibly be time to PL already...it seems way too young!

Maybe so. My dd did the same thing at that age, and we had a couple of false starts at potty training (and even a few pee catches), but it's taken her until 22 months to go from not wanting to be wet (and demanding a diaper change) to consistently wanting to do something about it herself (i.e. go to the potty). In our case, though, dd is tiny and the huge toilet seemed to scare her, but she didn't like the Bjorn tiny potty, either. All you can do is give it a try. If she seems at all resistant to using the potty, it's best not to push her since she's still very young. But you might get lucky, this may be your window of opportunity.

I would say this is the "window of oppurtunity" I took it with my daughter when she was 17 months and she trained in a weekend. If she is interested, I would give her many oppurtunities for success, if it works great, if she loses interest or rebels nothing lost.

My 20 month old DD doesn't even care at all if her diaper is wet or not, so you're already ahead of us there, lol.

DS is the same way. He always tells me when he's wet or poopy, but he won't go in the potty. We just keep trying. He sits on it, and makes the "psssss" noise but doesn't actually pee. He freaks when he poops without a diaper on and it gets on his legs, tho. We haven't gone to trainers yet, I'm thinking we might soon, if he continues to stay dry during naps and tell us when he has just gone potty.

Funny, I just posted about something similar a minute ago DD is 14 months and pulls off her diaper when it is wet, and squats to pee and poop, and today she pulled off her diaper and pooped in another room :P

From the response you've gotten I say give it a shot. I asked cause I was worried starting too early would do more harm than good, but I guess if they're receptive to it, why not!
