New mom Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is home with son Lorenzo, and cherishing every sleepless moment! On Tuesday, the Jersey Shore star was photographed leaving the Livingston, N.J., medical center with her baby boy -- who seems to have a head full of dark hair! -- where she gave birth on Sunday. From the hospital, she headed to fiance Jionni LaValle's house in East Hanover, where the new family has been settling in.
"We don't sleep anymore. We just take lots of naps. Idc, as long as I'm staring at my handsome son," Snooki tweeted early Wednesday morning.
Shortly afterwards, she Instagrammed a photo of herself smiling in a leopard-print headband. "Happy 4 days old of being a mommy face!" Polizzi wrote. (You just know she's dying to post baby pictures -- as soon as she delivers the first few to whichever magazine bought the rights...)
So far, Snooki has surprised skeptics by appearing to be a very hands-on mom. She's been proudly nursing Lorenzo and pumping breastmilk, and has been tweeting a lot about both ("#BreastPump insteada #FistPump," she wrote on Tuesday). Why is she pumping if she's also nursing? It may be so Lorenzo's daddy can share the feeding responsibilities.
"Night shift for Lorenzo! I love this job!!!!!" she tweeted on Tuesday night.
In fact, Snooki and Jionni seem to be co-parenting pretty effectively so far. "Jionni and I are the dream team at changing diapers!" the reality star tweeted on Wednesday. "TEAMWORK BABE." LaValle's response: "hell ya! Best diaper changers in North Jersey!"
All in all, it sounds like things are going very smoothly for the former party girl -- even if post-partum life is not as glamorous as she expected.
