1. First, uh, find a baby.
2. Second, be sure that the object you found was indeed a baby by employing classic smelling techniques.
3. Next you flatten the baby before actually beginning the hugging process.
4. The ‘paw slide’. Simply slide paw around baby and prepare for possible close-up.
5. Finally, if a camera is present, you will need to execute the difficult and patented ‘hug, smile, and lean’ so as to achieve the best photo quality.
