I know a lot of you are big monkey fans..... and Christy's a die hard Turkey person.... and many of us are into frogs, or more specifically tree frogs (frogs ON the diaper, not frogs IN the diaper, except for Claire's amphibi-baby) or other particular creatures ( like sheep!! I love sheep!!! )..... and still others are really into celtic and fantasy themes. What is your favorite theme? Try to narrow it down to 3 or less, please. :LOL Otherwise we'd just be going on and on about how awesome ALL the themes are.... :

My top 3 picks of themes to adorn a diaper:
Celestial (Suns, Moons, Stars, & combinations of those things!)
Bugs (Dragonflies, Ladybugs, and Bumblebees, with swirly tails indicating busy flying movement )
African Savannah mammals (Giraffes, Zebras, Elephants, especially mama&baby depictions--but for me, these have to be very realistic, NOT cartoons)

I am part of the monkey lovers crowd

He's been climbing on everything since he learned how to crawl, so monkeys are very fitting for him

if monkeys aren't an option, I go for frogs, puppies, or any cute fuzzy boyish animals.

Oooh, it's sooo hard!!! I like soooo many things!!!
Monkies
Frogs
mature celestial
rubber duckie
fairies
sheep

I usually prefer more mature looking embroidery compared to more kiddie embroidery. But, I make exceptions, too.

My color schemes, I either like pale pastels together or bold and brash together. I'm not much for the inbetween usually.

Of course they can, but for me, personally, I wouldn't enjoy them as much on a son as I would if I had a little girl to dress up in those types of more feminine things. Since there are so many cool things that are awesome and totally non-girly, I just stick with those and can wait on the butterflies & fairies & unicorns & flowers for when I have a daughter one day.

It changes often. I really have fun getting things that my Braedon is into so that when I enjoy the FluffyMail when it arrives, he does too. It makes me happy to see him smile over fluff, LOL. I feel like Ive made his day buying him special diapers.

So, We've done

Monkeys
Dogs
Wild Animals

and his new thing now is Trains and Trucks (Cuck-Bee Bee, Tain-Too Too), so Ill be on the lookout for trains and trucks, I guess.

I DO NOT do character themes, thats one thing I refuse!


ETA: Oops, for her I like girly things, anything pink will catch my eye since Ive had a boy for so long, I am really digging the pink since Ive been dressing and diapering a boy for so long, although I put pink girly things on him plenty, but this is different. Once she can express what she enjoys though, Ill get her diapers based on her likes as well, thats fun for me!
