It is pretty normal once they get outside they just go for it. She sounds fine but if you have concerns ask her doctor. They have no fear at this age so nothing scares them that is why it is very important to be right there to stop her from doing anything that could cause her injury. My 2 1/2 year things everything is funny at this point and the laughing is also typical. I don't understand what you mean by "keeping her hands cover" but judging by everything else I don't think you have anything to be concerned but like I said if you do talk to her doctor.

This is very typical 2 year old behavior. Sarah got it on point it needs corrected and disciplined. At this age the best thing is either time-out or 1-2-3 Magic. I can give the basics of both but it is best to look them up on your own so you have a full understanding of what you should be doing.
In a time-out you have a designated place for her to sit during the time-out, it should last one minute for each year of her age(so 2 minutes right now) during the time out she must me calm and quiet anytime she gets up or starts to throw a fit you start the time over. I have found that a timer works great for this and then she will learn when the time out is over without having to ask.
I-2-3-Magic works basically by giving 3 warnings; "that's 1 for banging your head, that's 2 for banging your head, that's 3 for banging your head" the you proceed to time-out. You need to give about a minute or so between warnings. The biggest difference in the 2 is that for 1-2-3-Magic you can change the consequence and it also gives them a warning about what they are doing that is wrong.

That is not adhd. That is behavior that needs to be disciplined for. She is 2 yrs old and she is acting like a 2 yr old. The only way a 2 yr old learns proper behavior is to be taught what is right and wrong. When she does something that is not appropriate then there needs to be a consequence for that action ( not just being told not to do something). At 2 yrs old time outs are a great form of consequence. My suggestion would be to read up on how to do a proper time out.
