Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley may have
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 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.”
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 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.”
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 we’re going to step it up a notch soon and get him ABA treatments, speech therapy… He’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 didn’t fill in. He didn’t understand what you were saying. 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 doesn’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!!
