We wish Jionni, Snooki and Lorenzo many more years of Instagrammable milestones!
When Snooki and Jionni welcomed son Lorenzo LaValle into the world one year ago today, they couldn't have possibly yet understood the effect he'd have on their lives, as well as the Internet-at-large. The chubby-cheeked cutie was once little more than a surreal concept on "Snooki & JWOWW," but it soon became clear that he would do great things (no, not as a bartender).
Beginning with his birth announcement, Lorenzo caused quite a stir: Not many people have been awarded the highly coveted guido status upon their delivery! And soon enough, his sick personal style set him apart from all those other babies born in 2012. Whether he was rocking Santa suits, business casual attire or just kicking back in Jordans, there was no out-swagging this little ladies' man, who spent the year breaking the hearts of the under 52-week set with his fresh gear and spiky 'do.
Of course, there were the hard times, like when his feet seemed so far away from his hands, and that moment he realized he'd be a slave to the barbershop for the rest of his days. And, of course, the time that giant, scary bunny came to his house. But through it all, the kid persevered. He's achieved both inner peace and sick muscles with his regimen of yoga and surfing, he's found his sense of humor through the subtle art of photobombing and, perhaps most importantly, he's mastered walking (!!!) while screaming, like a true son of "Jersey Shore," as evidenced by the vid below that Jionni recorded this morning.
Lorenzo: You've come a long way, pal. Happy birthday, and here's to thousands more hugs and kisses from your doting mommy and daddy!
