Miles got a new Spider-Man swim suit for his birthday, and while he's super enthused about it... ...he remains less enthused about mommy taking his picture.
With the recent release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, there's been a lot of talk in our house about everyone's favorite wall-crawler. And with options like Spidey and His Amazing Friends at his fingertips, Miles is already well on his way to following in my footsteps.
