Michelle Duggar is finally able to hold her preemie daughter, Josie, who weighed 1 lb., 6 oz. when she was born at just 25 weeks.

"Momma's here. She looks so big to me," Michelle, 43, coos to Josie, who is 47 days old and still hospitalized in the clip, which airs on Tuesday night's episode of 19 Kids and Counting on TLC (9 p.m. EST).

A nurse from the intensive care unit explains that Josie now weighs 2 lbs., 3 1/2 oz.

"She eats breast milk that mom has pumped and we have, and she gets it continuously at six milliliters an hour, which is about a teaspoon an hour," the nurse says.


Michelle also tries to place a purple polka-dot bow headband on Josie's head, but decides "it may be too snug" with her IV.

"You look so beautiful, even without the bow," Michelle says. "You're just beautiful."
