2 year old very scared

Good day, my little girl turned 2 in February. She is very scared of lots of different things, for example, we went to a party with a jumping castle with a picture of John Cenna, she pointed to him and said " scared" . She is scared of the " eyes"  of our alarm system at home, and they are just little white boxes fixed to the wall. When my husband or i talk loudly, like when we reprimand her older brother, she gets scared and starts crying. Is this normal?? She goes to bed early, so she doesnt ever watch scary movies with us.
Thank you

Many children of this age go through this stage. You will need lots of patience with her and she will need lots of reassurance and explanation. This stage will soon pass.
