First, spy a baby.
Second, be sure that the object you spied was indeed a baby by employing classic sniffing techniques -- if you smell baby powder and the wonderful aroma of wet diapers this is, indeed, a baby.
Next you will need to flatten the baby before actually beginning the hugging process.
Note: The added slobber should help in future steps by making the 'paw slide' easier.
The 'Paw Slide': Simply slide paws around baby and prepare for possible close-up.
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.
