Oftentimes, after his nap in the afternoon, Guthrie will climb up onto the couch and ask to "hold" Sammy. He'll enthusiastically hold his arms out and say, "eese, eese" (translation: please, please) until I hand the little guy over.
Once G has the Samster in his arms the following progression usually takes place:
1. G will wait with a smile until I grab the camera
2. Sammy starts sliding down G's lap progressively faster
3. Guthrie proclaims, "all done! All done!" once Sammy is practically horizontal.
All for a photo shoot. And love, too, of course!
