A Head Start on Potty Training?

So I’ve come up with something so crazy that it might actually work. We’ll just have to see.
Ella sitting on her ladybug potty!

Ella is only 16 months old so I’m nowhere near ready to start potty training. But since she follows me into the bathroom every time I thought I’d buy her a potty to put next to mine. Using repetition (a toddler’s favorite way to learn) I wanted to show her that the only reason we go into a bathroom is to sit on a potty. We’ve had Ella’s ladybug potty next to ours for 3 weeks now and she has finally made the connection! Now every time I use mine she sits down on hers. And every once in a while she will sit there by herself! Whether or not this will make actual potty training easier is still up for debate (and I promise to post an update when that exciting chapter starts). But it's absolutely fabulous that she knows where to go and what to do. Do any of you have helpful potty training tips? I'm not exactly sure where to go from here.
