We flew from Salt Lake to Chicago, where we were supposed to have a 1 hour layover before connecting to Raleigh. While in Chicago, however, Southwest's entire computer system crashed so our 1 hour layover turned into a 4 hour layover and 3 of those hours were spent on the plane just sitting at the gate - not an ideal situation when traveling with a baby. We finally arrived at our hotel at 4:30 am this morning and promptly crashed in the bed. Dave and I are sooo tired right now and feel like we did a whole body workout even though all we did was sit, but we're glad we made it!
Sophie did awesome and was pleasant for 98% of the trip
Our flight had 2 empty seats and we were lucky enough to get one of them and Sophie was able to spend the majority of the flight asleep - huge blessing!!
