Snooki may have released the very first photos of her bundle of baby joy, Lorenzo LaValle, on the cover of People, but most of her fans have been hoping that she would start tweeting more intimate pics. On September 15, their wish was answered, as the new mom tweeted the above image of ‘Enzo.

Gazing into his face lovingly, the meatball mama looked transfixed by her little man as they lay together. Snooki tweeted, “I love you” alongside the adorable pic.

Still sporting some of her signature swag, including giant hoop earrings and some false eyelashes, we’re still getting used to seeing the Jersey Shore star in mom mode, but we’re liking what we see so far.

Lorenzo’s hair, by the way, has a swagger all on its own. Look how well-groomed the tiny meatball is!

Jersey Shore Season 6 will premiere on Thursday, October 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
