I was shocked 8 wks ago when I heard my daughter counting her toys out loud as she touched each one. She's been counting stuff ever since.
She "narrates" her life- talking out loud to herself about what she just did or is about to do -I'll kick my ball, I climbed up, I closed the door.
She has new obsessions with coloring, pushing buttons, & going outside... & talking & having tantrums about them.
Tonight while I was running her bath she sat down on her potty, peed, and then clapped and said "I peed in a potty." The thing is, we haven't started trying to potty train yet except showing her the new little potty.
I am proud of her, but I feel like I should ask the DR about developmental disorders or Autism. She doesn't seem delayed in anything but...
I guess what I'm asking is: Is this typical behavior for a young toddler? Counting, self-potty training, talking to herself, etc?

She might just be advanced in her age. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
