Is this sensory seeking?

DS has started to point his finger to our mouths and we then go for a "bite" which makes him laugh. Then he keeps doing it again and again until he's bored.

He's also started to put his finger on our eyes (and nose once) so we respond and say "eyes". This doesn't make him laugh though. He'll then go away and every so often come back and wants to do it again.

Is this sensory seeking behaviour? Am I overthinking this? grin

He'll be 2 next month. I want to think it's silly fun too but I'm forever looking for signs connected to asd. I guess I should just chill out and enjoy these moments.

I think this is normal toddler behaviour. My friend's little ones do this they think it's hilarious to prod and poke adults.
