Josie weighed 1 lb., 6 oz. when she was born three months early in December 2009. But by the looks of it, she’s finally healthy and happy!

Michelle, Jim Bob and 18 Duggar kids filled the Today show studio this morning, June 7, to talk about the new season of their show 19 Kids and Counting and to fill us in on miracle baby Josie’s progress. She looks wonderful!

The nineteenth (and littlest) Duggar, now 18-months-old, was born three months premature in December 2009 and spent the first six months of her life battling a life-threatening disease. But now, she’s flourishing — as we can see!

“Looking at Josie today you would never know that she only weighed 22 ounces at birth,” said Today‘s Matt Lauer of the healthy baby girl. And Michelle agreed!

“She is a miracle baby and all of us, we are so lucky to have her,” Michelle said. “Just the fact that she’s here is just that something to be grateful about.”

We agree! And Josie is beautiful!
