VIDEO: The Duggars Discuss Expanding Their Family

The season premiere of 19 Kids and Counting airing on TLC on Tuesday night will showcase the escapades of the Duggar family as they return home from Little Rock, Arkansas, where they spent months living in a rented house while youngest baby Josie was in hospital after being born four months premature.

"Josie is doing great, she weighs 11 pounds, 1 ounce now," Michelle said about her tiny daughter.

Currently seven months old, Josie is the size of a four-month-old, and her mom says "she's doing everything a four-month-old baby would do."

"She is cooing, she loves to hear herself squeal, which is her newest thing," the proud parent explained. "She is making her own noise, she smiles all the time - she's such a happy little kid."

The premature baby suffered several setbacks after she was born but is now developing well.  "They (the doctors) said her eyes checked out perfectly, her ears are great, her motor skills are good. We are so thankful and realized what a miracle she is."

Big sister Jennifer Duggar turned 3 on Monday and Jim Bob told that they took the birthday girl out to eat with her siblings.

"She was so cute," said mom Michelle. "She kept saying I have a dink, I have a dink, and I finally realized she was saying 'drink.'  She had water with a lemon slice in it and she thought it was a special treat!"

The new season of the reality show premieres with two back-to-back episodes on TLC on Tuesday at 9pm.
