Do you have a little potty chair? Sometimes, kiddos are scared of the big toilet, even with a child seat on it. They see stuff go down the hole and never come back and they know they are little enough to fall in! A potty chair might be your answer. I would let my DD carry her potty chair into other rooms, too. (Obviously, it was empty when she carried it, LOL). That way she could sit on her potty without undies on and watch a TV show and it distracted her just enough that it happened "accidentally" at first. Then she realized she could control it and it didn't take long after that!
Also, just because she is mimicking what she sees you do in the bathroom (pull her pants down in there) doesn't mean that is a sign of readiness, it just means she knows what other people do in there and she is mimicking it.
Even if she is ready, there is no harm in waiting a couple of months. She'll just be more ready by then!
