“Jersey Shore” favorite Jenni “JWoww” Farley loves being a mom, and she made that very clear while celebrating her youngest child’s birthday on May 5.

Over the last year, JWoww has been giving her fans and social media followers a glimpse into what life has been like for her and her family since her son, Greyson, was diagnosed with autism.

As Dearly previously reported, when Greyson was first diagnosed, he was nonverbal. The mom of two, who is currently going through a divorce, quickly sought out the best resources that would allow her son to overcome his disabilities.

And while JWoww and Greyson still have a ways to go, the proud mom used Greyson’s third birthday to celebrate just how much progress he has made so far.

When you were first born, you needed to stay in the hospital a few extra days… I got to stay with you and spend Mother’s Day by your side. The perfect son from day one, so delicate and sweet. I cant even picture life before you because you and your sister complete me. You slept on my chest until you were a year old because it was the only way I could calm your chronic cough… yet, I needed that more than you needed me because hearing your breath every night calmed me. now I wake up with your arm across my face or your butt on my head. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Today you turn 3. This past year flew by so fast. I had you start early intervention 2 days after your second birthday. You didn’t know your name, you didn’t know how to say mommy… as you turn three, you know countless words, call me mommy 10394 times a day and your smile has grown 10x. To my perfect son, happy birthday… I’ll continue to hold you every night until my last breath.

Thousands, including a handful of her “Jersey Shore” co-stars like best friend Nicole “Snooki” Pilozzi, wished Greyson a happy birthday and praised the mother-son duo for how far they’ve come.
