when did everyone's chi start communicating the need to go outside to potty. unless we take bella outside, if she has to go, she just goes wherever she is... how do we get her to want to go outside and let us know?
Joey started alerting me when he was about her age, so it could be coming soon... Paco and Bartholomew had him to learn from, so they started doing it much sooner... but it did take Joey a little while on his own, having no one too look up to, so hang in there!

Do you always take her out the same door to go outside?

Have you caught her going and made a loud noise (I usually slap my hands together and firmly say NO!) then immediately take her outside? It's VERY important to catch and correct ANY accidents to let her know what you don't want in addition to what you do. If so, then it may just take a little more time, as it did with Joey. All of a sudden, he just started walking over to the stairs and staring down them and it was like it just clicked. It was a very good feeling. I'm sure she'll catch on pretty soon...
