If you listen closely, you can hear Michelle Duggar's uterus screaming for mercy all the way from Arkansas. After 19 kids, reality TV stars Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar aren't quite ready to stop procreating.

Super-mom Michelle told RadarOnline earlier this week:

"That would be wonderful! We would love another person to add to our family. We will wait and see and take it one at a time."

The season premiere of 19 Kids and Counting aired last night on TLC and showed the homecoming of baby number 19, Josie, who was born in late December three months premature.

So, how's Josie doing seven months after her birth?


In last night's episode, we see Michelle saying an emotional good-bye to the hospital staff in the NICU who have been caring for Josie. Josie still needs supplemental oxygen to ensure her oxygen stays at a certain level and wears a heart monitor. Michelle wonders how Josie will adjust to a world that's not full of beeping machines and bright lights. It was an emotional farewell, then homecoming. Maybe I even shed a tear.

Josie is still tiny -- only weighing 11 pounds, 1 ounce -- less than my sumo wrestler of son weighed at birth. But, she's smiling, cooing, and developing well.

Despite my personal misgivings about the Duggars wanting to have more kids, I'm happy to see Josie is doing well and we know that she'll grow up in a large, loving family.

Do you think the Duggars are crazy to want a 20th child?
