Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is such a proud mom! The former Jersey Shore star wished her eldest, Lorenzo Dominic, a happy birthday on Instagram on Saturday, August 27, and her post couldn't be any sweeter.

“OMG. Happy 5th Birthday to my son who changed my life for the better," the 29-year-old mom of two wrote. “You are my world and I’m so proud to be your mommy! I remember when I first laid eyes on you and knew I would protect you with all of my being until the day I die. He’s gonna read this and say ‘thanks ma.’" Ha!

She concluded, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY LORENZO! Stop growing and freaking me out!" Aww! Other mamas can certainly relate to that feeling!

Snooki wasn't the only one who wanted to share a birthday wish with her little boy. Her former co-star and BFF Jenni "JWoww" Farley also posted a shot of herself holding a newborn Lorenzo. Too cute!

Happy birthday, Lorenzo! And "birth day" to Snooki! Can't believe it's been five years since her parenthood journey began.
