On last week’s kick off of The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 4 Reunion, Jacqueline Laurita shared that her 3-year-old autistic son Nicholas has stopped saying “I love you.” While he was once able to say that to his mom and others, the autism has caused Nick to regress and virtually stop speaking.

Jacqueline, her husband Chris, and their entire extended family have rallied around the little guy and are doing everything they can to help him speak again, and judging by a recent tweet from Jacqueline, something is definitely working!

“Nick said 3 words today. "please" "chip" and "goodbye" :0),” Jacqueline tweeted on Oct. 3.

We know those aren’t the three words Jac has been holding out to hear, but that’s major progress for Nick, and we know everyone must be so happy and proud of him.

Way to go, kiddo! Are you proud of Nick?
