This evening on 19 Kids and Counting, "Josie Duggar's First Hug," TLC aired footage of Josie Duggar at 40 days old. She weighed 2 pounds 5 ounces and is continuing to develop quickly.
Having been told after Josie's birth not to stimulate their daughter in any way, when parents Jim Bob and Michelle were finally able to stroke their baby, they were thrilled. Now, the doctors and nurses are allowing Michelle to pick up Josie and hold her, skin to skin. "This is the most calming moment I've had," explained the elated mother. With her baby in her arms, Michelle was fighting back tears.
