Pregnancy week 40: We’re back home with a new addition to the family… Baby Tarzan!

by Tarzan · 61 comments

Baby TarzanWe’re back!   Pregnancy week 40 brought Baby T into this world!  This will be a quick post – we have a lot of family and friends coming over today to see our little guy.  Everything is going great.  Baby Tarzan is great.  Jane is doing and feeling great (minus being a little sore!).  I’m doing great.  We’ve very happy!

There is SO MUCH that Jane and I want to share with you.  There’s so many stories, so many details, so many things…  We’ll get new posts out in due time, once we get things somewhat in order around here.  But more importantly, as I mentioned on Jane’s Twitter account, I promised a photo of our little Baby Tarzan.

And there he is above!

As far as the winner who won the contest about guessing the date and time Baby T would be born, please give us a few days to get a chance to go through those and see who won. :)

Jane says hello to everyone and she’ll post when she can – it may be a few days or more.  Mommy needs her sleep!

Also, a BIG BIG BIG thank you for the 1,000′s of congratulations we received on Jane’s Twitter account when Baby Tarzan was born – and the congratulations continue to come in.  Thank you guys so much – Jane and I read all of the replies and posts to us while we were hanging out with Baby T at the hospital.  We appreciate all of you so much – you have no idea how helpful everyone has been to us.  Thank you.

Oh, before I run… what did Jane do before the day she went into labor?

It was so funny… the day before she went into labor, I blogged listing 29 ways to induce labor from home.  The night before we had sex, Jane ate pineapples, pizza with hot spices on it and hot wings.  We wanted to do all we could to get things moving – so maybe those worked or maybe it was a coincidence.  We’ll have to test those again the next time around.  :)

And finally… what’s next for the His Boys Can Swim blog?  Well, A LOT.  There’s a lot that we want to talk to you guys about – but give us a week or two on that one.  Bottom line is that we will of course keep our pregnancy and now baby blog going and going.  :)  We’ll just be adding a few things that Jane and I came up with over the past 9 months.

OK, gotta get ready for fam and friends to come over.  Thanks again to ALL of you.  We appreciate you SO VERY MUCH!


P.S… Baby Tarzan was born on his due date and from what I read (which surprised me) only 5% of babies are born on their due date.  Jane also didn’t have to have a c-section, so combine those two together and Baby T is a very special baby!  He was 7 pounds, 12 oz. 20 and 1/4 inches long!  Jane’s water broke at 4 AM and was in labor for about 12 hours.  I’m so proud of her – she did good!

When you get back into the swing of blogging, I would love to see a post about what items were/were not needed in the hospital. Congrats again!

Jane and Tarzan, Baby Tarzan is absolutely gorgeous. Be sure to spend lots of time together with your new family and get into the groove of life with baby. Enjoy the little guy, take lots of photos for yourself because they really do grow up so quickly.

P.S. Jane, you did an amazing job! So proud that you did what you wanted and had a relatively short labor for a first baby. So many things from Tarzan reminded me of my first labor :)

Congrats again! Baby T is a cutie!

awww…newborns are so sweet. I miss my youngest being a newborn & he’s not quite 5 months. It really does go sooo fast (although while you’re in it, it feels like forever). Take time every day to just love on him. And I second taking *lots* of pictures. You won’t have time with the next baby (if you have one :) )

10 Connie

14 Helen

Baby T is absolutely beautiful. You done good Tarzan and Jane:-)
I’m SO curious about the name you chose. Of course, you may not want to share it with us, but I’d love to know. I hope you’ll tell us!! I seem to remember one of you saying that it was printed on the wall of his nursery…so maybe that’s why you haven’t shared the completed nursery pics?
Anyway, enjoy your family time. I’ll be checking back frequently.

PS- somebody messaged me today who thinks this blog is a hoax…LOL!

15 MeMa Rose

Oh my goodness….he is absolutely so handsome!! So glad to hear that everything went so well and that there were no complications for either Jane or Baby T. Thank you so much for sharing all of this with us and I will be looking forward to what is going on now that you have him home :o ) Enjoy him and everyone else who is going to go crazy over him!!!

16 Josie

I second the comment above- I also went through the posts and came out with Mandi as the winner.

17 Leanna

He is absolutely precious! Jane did a good job baking that baby! Congratulations again. I am so thrilled for you two, and so excited to be joining you in parenthood in just a few short weeks!

Also, if I remember correctly, comment #8 won the “labor day” contest. I think it was Mandi? I just did a ctrl+f for “July 23″ and looked at everything that came up, and she was VERY close time-wise.


omg he is so cute… congrats again i want to blog about my pregnancy now lol but im not so good at writing and making things interesting. wish you guys the best of luck with baby tarzan…

19 Jessi

He’s beautiful, you guys! Congrats again.

And it sounds like you did a wonderful job, Jane! It’s always nice when things go the way you want them…I read on the Twitter you’re breastfeeding…How’s that going so far?

20 Jenna

Congratulations – Baby T sure is a handsome little guy!

I’m so happy to hear that you guys will be continuing your blog! I found when I first found out I was pregnant (I’m 21 weeks along, now) and I can’t imagine life without your funny and candid posts. I can’t wait to see what kind of adventures Baby T will take you guys through in the coming months and years. :)

21 MVP
