Jenni “JWoww” Farley just gave birth to son Greyson Valor  her second child with husband Roger Mathews — four weeks ago, but she’s already thinking about what’s next for her growing family.

“Roger and I have spoken about adopting in the future, but no more pregnancies!” she tells E! News. “I want to get my body back and keep it.”

Another child doesn’t seem like it’d be a stretch for Farley and Mathews, though, as they seem to already have the act of balancing two kids down — even if it’s still taking some effort to get used to.

“I tend to forget I can’t just jump in the car with [22-month-old daughter] Meilani and head to the beach,” the Jersey Shore alum, 30, says. “Since having Greyson, every day has to be planned the night before.”

The couple, who were married in October 2015, have been tackling being parents to two children head on — and most importantly, together.

“Roger and I always want to make sure Meilani isn’t feeling left out or feels she’s missing out on anything fun because her brother needs to stay home,” Farley says. “It is getting easier, and Roger and I are figuring this out together.”

Luckily, sibling rivalry isn’t on the table for their daughter — at least for the moment.

“[Meilani] is absolutely amazing. I was scared she would hate him or get super jealous,” she says. “[She] gives Greyson kisses and hugs and even feeds him.”

But just because their plates got a lot more full recently doesn’t mean Farley and Mathews aren’t also putting in the work for their own relationship. On the contrary, their marital bond has gotten even stronger since Greyson’s birth.

“We have much more respect for each other now. Roger is so hands on with both of them it made me fall in love with him all over again,” the former reality star says.

She adds, “We also learned to talk through disagreements rather than be stubborn or argue. We don’t want our children to see us fighting. We want them to learn how to talk through things and grow from the experience.”

As far as the family’s Father’s Day plans go, Farley says they plan to keep it pretty low-key by making some art projects for Mathews and barbecuing. But nature will definitely be involved.

“Roger and Meilani are outdoor buddies!” she says. “They love playing in the mud, swimming or just throwing rocks. Meilani is his little girl!”
