Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley may have a new man in her life, but there’s another younger man who celebrated a big milestone over the weekend!
The Jersey Shore: Family VacationÂ star celebrated her son Greyson Valor Mathews‘ third birthday on Sunday, and shared an update with her followers about speech progress after his autism diagnosis.
The 33-year-old reflected back to when he was born with a sweet carousel of photos on Instagram. She captioned it:
“When you were first born, you needed to stay in the hospital a few extra days… I got to stay with you and spend Motherâ€™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 wouldnâ€™t have it any other way.”
Farley also looks back on where he was just a year ago, and how far his speech has come since then:
“Today you turn 3. This past year flew by so fast. I had you start early intervention 2 days after your second birthday. You didnâ€™t know your name, you didnâ€™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… Iâ€™ll continue to hold you every night until my last breath.”
Additionally, the momma of two shared a sweet video of her son blowing out the birthday candles alongside his big sister Meilani (below):

As we reported, Jen originally opened up about his autism diagnosis in November 2018, and shared her plan for treatment:
“He has co-therapies [every] week but weâ€™re going to step it up a notch soon and get him ABA treatments, speech therapyâ€¦ Heâ€™s understanding words better, which was his issue.”
The Naturally Woww founder also expressed the initial frustration of seeing her son unable to connect with his family and peers:
“It was like I was speaking another language to him. That was the frustrating part because it didnâ€™t fill in. He didnâ€™t understand what you were saying.Â It was really heartbreaking and frustrating as a mom when you see other two-year-olds that are speaking and living their best life. Greyson is living his best life. He just doesnâ€™t know what you are saying!”
It seems like he’s taking a lot of steps in the right direction, and we’re so glad he’s making such great progress! Happy birthday, Greyson!!
