ERICK SAYS HELLO - VIEWS ON FATHERHOOD

sofia's first moments with papa

Hey everyone.  I’m excited to say that I have been chosen to do a guest post on my wonderful wife’s blog. She had asked me to write something up probably about two months ago (probably longer) but I just could not think of anything that would interest anyone else out there. Instead of trying to recall a story I decided just to write a bit about myself and some of the things I have been thinking about recently.

My name is Erick and I am a brand new father of a beautiful baby girl. I am a dj/producer, photographer, graphic designer, and videographer. I had gone to school at The School of the Art Institute to study primarily photography and design, but there are so many things in the world that interest me in so many creative ways that I just want to learn and do it all.

I am currently trying to start up a small design and production studio and it is hard finding the time to learn new things and really give this project 100% when I work full-time, have a new baby at home, and finding time to spend time with my wife, not to mention some downtime, entertainment, trying to finally motivate myself to workout...etc.

These past 3 months have been the most fantastic and difficult of my life. I can’t begin to express how amazing it feels to have your child laugh at the ridiculous things you do to fish for at least a smile, but with that there is stress of balancing your work and home life. I am excited and willing to give my full attention to our little girl for the rest of my life, no doubt about that. While I do that I am lucky enough to share all of my experiences with a wonderful wife, I can’t ask for anything better, but that won’t stop me from trying to get it.
