Pee Pee on the Potty, Mommy?

A couple weeks ago Moriah spent the morning at one of my friend's house.  She is currently trying to potty train her three year old son.  While Moriah was there, he pooped on the potty and my friend showed such a strong positive reaction to it (whooping and woo hoo and yahoo) that Moriah decided she wanted to get that kind of attention too.  Starting the very next day, she was asking to go pee pee and poop pooh too.  I have to say I have been very impressed with her so far.  We still aren't pressing the issue but rather just letting her tell us and taking her when she asks. 

The conversation goes like this:
Mo: "Pee pee on the potty, Mommy?"
Me: "Do you need to go potty?"
Mo:"Okay!  Pee pee on the potty!!!"

And up we go to the bathroom.  She even does a little song that goes to the conga line tune.  We have a routine and as soon as her little tush hits the toilet she goes.  Afterwards come her rewards.  She LOVES to wipe, flush, wash her hands and get chocolate (one M&M per potty experience and she gets to pick out which color she prefers).  She narrates every procedure too, as if I would forget that she needs her tush cleaned or her hands washed.  It is cute.  I am not sure just how long it will be till we can claim she is fully potty trained but we are headed in the right direction.
