Ever since we first met him on that heartwarming episode of Snooki & JWOWW when Snooki gave birth, we’ve loved watching adorable little Lorenzo grow up and go through all of his baby milestones.

Though we have to say, it is a bit jarring to see him so tiny on TV and so much older in recent photos. Luckily his doting parents, Snooki and Jionni, have been posting plenty of pictures of the little guy for us fans to keep us up to date on his latest achievements and special moments.

Now Snooki’s Instagrammed two new pics of her snuggling and playing with Lorenzo, and you won’t believe how big he’s getting!

In the first pic, Snooki and Lorenzo are laying side by side on the rug and cuddling together. “He loves his mommy,” she wrote as a caption.

The second pic is one of the most precious we’ve ever seen of these two. Snook is putting her forehead up against her son’s and talking to him, while Lorenzo stares with his big wide brown eyes. “Mommy loves you,” she captioned the shot. This one should seriously be framed!

It seems like only yesterday he was discovering his feet for the first time. Now he’s doing more “tummy time” and practicing for his next step: crawling!

What do you think of Snooki’s latest pics of her with Lorenzo? Can you believe how big he is? Share below!
