Lorenzo LaValle is so close to talking, and we can’t wait to find out what his first words will be. He’s already almost saying “hey,” and now he’s got a new favorite gesture — shaking his head to say no. Uh oh. Are the terrible twos up next?

In an adorable video from Snooki’s Instagram, Snooki begs Lorenzo to say yes, but the smiley toddler won’t budge. “No, that’s the wrong one,” Snooks tells him, but that only makes him scream louder. “He says no to everything,” says Snooki’s caption.

Lorenzo’s quite a troublemaker lately. Just last week, he was caught red handed trying to escape his playroom, leaving a path of destruction in his wake. And according to Jionni, it’s pretty likely he’ll end up the same height and weight as Daddy when he’s older, effectively turning him into the Hulk.

But for now, Lorenzo’s still a sweetheart, even if he has his moments (as all toddlers do). His parents love him so much, they even threw him a second first birthday party over the weekend that featured a petting zoo and a cookout, attended by pals and former co-stars, Sammi Sweetheart and Ronnie Magro. We wish Snooki and Jionni were our parents!
