In brief: Normal Behavior

That is normal Behavior for her age.
Anticipate also that at Age 2 years Most of what she will tell you is No! No!. This is a time the Children Teach Their parents how to be Patient, Gentle, Kind in Choosing Words, Tolerant Inter-personal relationship, Forgiveness, Order, Right choices on when to be Firm and when to Let go; all the while remaining Calm & Loving. Enjoy Your Child and happy parentin

In brief: Walk away

and don't react: these tantrums are attention seeking mechanisms; however, I do suggest a pediatric exam to rule out any underlying medical condition: short of that, walk away.
