I encouraged these guys to read the whole story to Layla out loud even though she was out for the count. Doesn’t mean she can’t subconsciously hear though… She did in fact smile her sleepy smile right throughout the whole story. It’s not a coincidence, there are no coincidences. She really does know how much she is loved! :)
