Hello Baby!


Well, today I had my second appointment and ended up having another ultrasound. The nurse and doctor were having trouble finding the heart beat with the doppler so they decided to do an ultrasound to make sure the baby was fine. The baby is doing great. He or she has a strong heart beat and is very active! He or she was doing flips and kicking and waving as you can see in the picture. I could feel the baby moving as the doctor was pushing on my belly and I could see the baby move!! It's such a miracle!!!!!! We find out January 18 the sex of the baby!!! Can't wait!!!!

Now Thank We All Our God

Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done, in Whom this world rejoices;
Who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way
With countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.

O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts and bless├Ęd peace to cheer us;
And keep us in His grace, and guide us when perplexed;
And free us from all ills, in this world and the next!

All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given;
The Son and Him Who reigns with Them in highest Heaven;
The one eternal God, whom earth and Heaven adore;
For thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.

Words by: Martin Rinkart

As we celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday, let us not forget Who the praise goes to!
Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!!!

Mj's New Playset

A couple weeks ago, Mark saw this playset near his parents' house. The people were selling it so Mark made an offer! They took the offer and Mark brought home this beautiful playset!!! It's hard to keep Mj inside now! Even when it's freezing outside he wants to be on his swings and fort! The Lord definitely provided this blessing for Mj and the new baby!=) When Mj finds out that there's a sand box, too we will definitely never get him inside!=) We still need to go and buy the sand. I think we'll wait til spring!

Apple Festival

A couple weeks ago, we went to the Apple Festival near Gettysburg. It was a nice, cool fall day! Mj enjoyed seeing all the tractors and trains! He was thrilled when we found him a Thomas lantern for $5!! Mj also had his first pony ride. He like that the pony's name was Cowboy! We can't wait to go back next year.

Fall Activities

Since our camera broke, I haven't been able to download pictures. Finally, I can and I will soon have a new camera!!! Here's some of the activities we've been enjoying this fall!
We had our Fall Fling with our youth group! We made scarecrows and Stuffed Turkeys. We also enjoyed a great testimony time and bonfire!
Mark and Mj made a jack-o-lantern with our huge pumpkin! I think he turned out pretty good!
Mj enjoyed another year of trick-or-treating and we are still enjoying the candy!!!=)

We're having a BABY!!!



Yes, that's right! There will be another Fortney in the world!! God is so good!! We were told the only way we'd be able to have another baby is through fertility shots! We didn't have the money so we just waited for almost 4 years!
Mark and I are both still in shock! We were saying, why should we be shocked we prayed for this!!!
I had my first doctor's appointment today and Baby Fortney looks great! I'm 8 weeks and 2 days along! The baby has a heart beat of 160 beats per minute and he or she looks very healthy!! Praise GOD!!! My due date is June 10!!! We're so blessed and excited!! Praise God for His faithfulness and graciousness to us!!!
