Potty Training

So, I'm trying not to make a bigger deal of this than it is, but I'm excited for the spin off of potty training in our house.  We decided that we wouldn't be the parents that push it earlier than when Ellie is ready, since we think it would just cause a lot of stress for all of us.   But lately we've been letting E run around naked while her sore bum gets to air out (moisture irritation from our diaper study a few weeks ago is still going strong...) and while she does that, she enjoys sitting on her potty chair.  Ellie gets especially excited to go potty on her chair after seeing her cousin Ava poop on her potty chair.  So, last night she was sitting and standing, and while she stood up she started to pee and sat back down on her chair quickly.  Most of her potty went on the floor, but some of it went in!  I don't think she gets the sensation yet, so it'll be a while before we actually potty train.  I'm just excited that she's interested in it and that she somewhat gets the idea.  We're hoping that she'll be fully trained by the time the baby comes, but again, we're not pushing it. 
In other news- we're hopeful to find out baby #2's gender on Monday!  Can't believe I'm almost 5 months pregnant already!
