Super Fun and Unexpected Ways to Prepare for a New Baby

Your nursery is finished. Your baby shower was a blast. You have written and recited your birth plan. For all intents and purposes, you are ready to welcome your new baby into the world. But wait! Don’t wile away those last precious moments of pregnancy simply waiting! Here are some fun and unexpected ways to prepare your entire family for a new member.

Erin Trafford is a former radio and television broadcast journalist turned DIY blogger; who's obsessed with all things paint and power tools. She's made over entire rooms for less than $500, is frequently seen hauling dilapidated furniture off the curb, and is incredibly proud of the day she decided to nail her old back yard fence to her basement wall.

She love dogs, cats, Han Solo and pie – probably in that order. Erin and her (incredibly patient) husband Dan bought their little house by the sea in 2013, just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia. They have been working tirelessly since then to turn it into a castle, one project and one blog post at a time. You can find all their bloggy and house adventures over at DIY Passion. This year they are adding a baby into the blogging and DIY mix, expecting the arrival of their first child in the Fall.
