Like mother, like son. Snooki's baby boy Lorenzo is set to celebrate his first birthday on Monday, Aug. 26, and the former Jersey Shore star tells Us that her tiny meatball is already taking after her -- in more ways than one.

In addition to pacifiers, little Lorenzo is "also starting to like music," the reality star told Us at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 25. The pint-sized entrepreneur was a special correspondent for Extra at the awards show.

"He dances. He loves to dance," she said, demonstrating with a little butt shake. "He dances like this."

The first time mom, 25, looked radiant in a low-cut black NYC Glitz bejeweled, halter-neck dress, her hair in long red waves. She topped off her look with giant chandelier earrings and Jeffrey Campbell shoes.

For Lorenzo's first birthday, Snooki told Us that she and fiance Jionni Lavalle are having two celebrations -- one for her show with BFF JWoww and one "at my mom's house which is more family and quiet."

"He likes balls, so I got him a ball pit and a few tunnel things," she said of their plans for Lorenzo's big day. "He likes to play."
