Cuteness alert! Melissa Gorga's son is growing up fast and he is beyond adorable. The busy Real Housewives of New Jersey mama took to Instagram to post an incredibly cute pic of her little man, decked out in full superhero garb, complete with a cape, mask, and shield!

"Happy Sunday ... From Lil Joey the super hero!!" Melissa wrote.

Her followers quickly replied with a slew of aww's, proclaiming him so cute and so grown up. We couldn't agree more! Before we know it, Joey will be pumping iron at the gym with his Dad!

The photo was taken on Sunday, April 13, when the Gorgas celebrated Palm Sunday together.

We've mostly been seeing pictures of Melissa's daughter, Antonia, lately, as her parents chauffeured her to various cheerleading competitions around the Jersey area, so it's nice to get a glimpse of Joey, Jr. for a change.

The family is currently renting a pad in Franklin Lakes, while they wait for their dream home to be completed later this year. Joe and Melissa thought it would be best to move to their forever town sooner rather than later, so that the kids wouldn't have to switch to a different school down the road.

But, with summer around the corner, September seems far away and the Gorga's are looking at a long sunny season spending tons of time at their Jersey shore house, playing on the beach, chilling on their boat, and grilling up a storm. It must be good to be a Gorga kid!

Can you believe how grown up Joey looks? Sound off below!
