Default Birdy Maturity

I'm fully believing Ezio is hitting maturity. She's been regurgitating on every single thing she can, her cuttlebone (which I took out and threw away because there was only a small chunk left anyhow so need to go to the store), the ends of her rope perch, the end of her two wooden perches, on her food dish, any place she can. She hasn't tried expressing her love on anything by mating behavior, but she's regurgitating (or trying to) on every single thing just about 24/7. I can't just take away her perches thats wrong. But she doesn't allow me to correct her, she actually BIT me today for trying to redirect her to play with a toy instead. I'm getting really frustrated with her, I can't have her out, she eats pretty much to regurgitate on her items, and I just don't know how to handle this. I'm getting very angry with her regurg. on everything she sees, as it's been so much I need to wipe it up

TLDR; I'd like some advice or tips or literally anything to help me cope with Ezio hitting maturity and regurgitating on everything she sees.

Getting angry and/or frustrated solves nothing.
Ezio is behaving as a bird behaves.

Part of being a mature and responsible owner is accepting your budgie for who and what she is.

No no no not with HER just the fact that she keeps regurgitating on everything! I probably should of made that more clear.

No, I understood what you meant.
You are frustrated with Ezio's behavior of regurgitating.

I have one male bird that will regurgitate on anything shiny. He is enamored of his reflection and continually wants to feed himself.
And -- he is 4 1/2 years old so I sincerely doubt this is something that will ever change in his case.

Unfortunately, I don't have any advice on how you can stop a Ezio from regurgitating to the various items at this time.
Has she come into condition?

I don't know if she is.. Her cere has seemed to turn more blue, and strong white around the nostrils.(?) It used to be more purple and not as strong white. So perhaps she has. It doesn't seem to be significant, I can only tell if I'm right in her face

Her cere will turn be a crusty brown color when she is in condition.

Then no, she is not in condition. So is this just, random behavior?

I'm estimating she was born in lateish October, I bought her in late November and she had very defined baby bars on her forehead. So an estimated 8 months old.

I'm sorry you are still having problems with Ezio's over the top displays of affection.
From your description it seems your budgie girl is developing an obsessive behaviour, if she has truly started to regurgitate on various items on her cage and she spends most of her daily time in this activity.
This in the long run will have a negative impact on her physical health (weight loss and increased chance of having crop related issues, such as crop infections).
At this point, it would be a good idea for you to completely rearrange her cage and replace all perches she has been regurgitating on (and thoroughly wash these) for different ones. The same thing goes for toys, you can place a couple of wooden chew toys to see if Ezio busies herself by chewing on them.
You should not give her access to mirrors or anything she can see her reflex on.
No nesting areas should be available, either. Reducing the amount of daylight hours and the protein on her diet could also be helpful in terms of keeping her hormones more under control.
It would be good to increase the daily amount of out of cage time and to set up playful activities where your Ezio will spend her pent up energy in.
Clicker training could be a very good option to incorporate discipline and a new focus for Ezio.
With the right tools and skill, it's possible for you to correct Ezio's more deviant behaviour, and for this there will have to be a commitment on your part in terms of spending the daily time to work with her. This is something that must be done in a consistent manner.
You can start by checking this link: https://talkbudgies.com/taming-bondin...-training.html
For the detailed information, check the Taming and Bonding section of Talk Budgies.

You can also get the professional opinion from your trusted avian vet specialist on how to deal with the obsessive regurgitation.

Best of luck with everything.
