Once upon a time, we put Aidan to sleep for naps atop a pillow in a laundry basket. After spending sometimes 3 hours walking around town with him in my Mei Tai, I would carefully remove him and lay him down. Sometimes he would stay sleeping, and other times he would wake up...but it was always cute to see him lying there.
Fast forward approximately one year, and Aidan is certainly no longer willing (or able) to nap in our laundry basket. It does, however, often make a comfy lounge chair :-)
