Contant Nipping at us and biting everything

We have the most adorable 2 month old Moodle (Maltese X Toy Poodle) "Mimi Moodle" :) She loves nipping us when we pat her, rub her tummy or touch her in any way, all she wants is our hands and feet (any part of us). We YELP out loud, give her her teething plastic ring or toy close by and then ignore her, but she persists and has now started growling at us and actually shows some aggression. PLEASE help as she is so young to be showing aggression and I do not know what to do?

This is a baby trying to play, it isn't aggression. Make sure you enroll her in some puppy classes so she can learn bite inhibition with other puppies. Just keep doing what you are doing, it takes time and consistency.
