Snooki: "I love nursing"--- *UPDATE* first glimpse of bb Lorenzo

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has had eyes for many guys, but none has held her attention quite like little Lorenzo.

"Lorenzo is even cuter today," gushed the new mom, 24, Tuesday on Twitter, of her son, who was born on Sunday. "#imsolucky."

Polizzi, who is engaged to Lorenzo's father, Jionni LaValle, shared a photo of their son's nursery (the changing table is leopard print, of course) and reassured one of her pregnant followers that "all the pain and anxiety is so worth it!!!"

The musings on motherhood didn't stop there, either. Although the Jersey Shore star confessed earlier in the summer that breastfeeding "looks so painful," the new mom has had a change of heart.

Tweets Polizzi, "I love nursing my little man!"


Son of Snooki was officially unleashed on Planet Earth today ... and TMZ has the very first pics of lil' Lorenzo LaValle and his mommy being carted out of the a New Jersey hospital.

You can't see much of Lorenzo's face ... only the top of his head ... which appears prime for gobs of gel and grease.

Mama Snooks was clutching her little boy with both arms ... holding him tighter than a cup of Ron-Ron Juice at Karma nightclub.

Snooki gave birth on Sunday ... but it appears she's already back to normal ... rocking a pair of platform wedges as she was wheeled back into reality ... TV ... as an MTV camera crew documented the entire thing.
