If at first you don't succeed, puff, puff again!

Little Boy Can't Blow Out CandleYouTube

This adorable little boy is our favorite little trier of the day. He's just turned 2 and in a YouTube video of his birthday celebration, he appears to have his very own cupcake with a candle in it. All he has to do is make a wish and blow out the flame.

So he tries! And tries again! And tries again!

After nearly 20 seconds of huffing, puffing, staring and probably a little spitting, the toddler finally succeeds!

The learning process has never seemed so cute, though we wonder just slightly if he had a bit of extra practice before the video went on since his lip and nose already appear to have been dipped in delicious, sweet frosting.
