You have given an excellent desciption of your grandson's behaviour and of your concerns about him.He appears to be a highly intelligent child who had accelerated milestones. He is constantly seeking attention. He appears to have a very short attention span and is reluctant to play on his own.Of course his environment may have something to do with his behaviour, being isolated in a quiet and remote area with no other children. The story about his deep interest in keys is unusual and seems to have an obsessive quality He is not going to easily adjust to the presence of the new baby.The question is really is his behaviour just the result of his circumstances or is it sufficiently unusual to warrant concern.I am a bit concerned about his obsessive behaviour and also his constant demand for attention.I am concerned that he may be demonstrating some early features of a syndrome such as Aspergers or the autism syndrome. It would be a good idea for him to be seen by a child psychologist even though he is very young for an opinion.
