My 19 month old DD has started getting scared of loud noises a couple months ago, such as the vacuum (which I rarely use), blender, low flying propeller planes, big trucks, riding lawn mower. She wants to be picked up when we hear loud noises outside. I tell her the plane is going bye bye and to wave to the planes. She waves once the plane is past us. She hysterically cried when I started the vacuum cleaner for the first time. I have the vacuum cleaner in the living room and she doesn't seem to be bothered by it when it is not running. Does this sound like normal toddler behavior for her age? Do any of your toddlers act this way?

maybe when you've started the vaccum for the first time she got really scared and since then she's so scared of the loud sounds? I guess that the worst scenario would be a PTSD but I doubt that it would be the case. Pretty sure she'll be fine when would get older
