Mother's Day is filled with bittersweet feelings for mother-of-19 Michelle Duggar, as she sits in the neonatal intensive care unit of Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock with preemie Josie Brooklyn.

"This Mother's Day is definitely going to be different because we'll be at the hospital," she tells PEOPLE. "This is the first time I've been in the hospital on Mother's Day."

Josie was born on Dec. 10 at a gestational age of 25 weeks, weighing just 1 lb. 6 oz., after Michelle's preeclampsia (pregnancy-related high blood pressure) put both their lives at risk.

"She reached the 6 lb. mark today," says Michelle excitedly, adding that doctors continue to run tests to determine when Josie will be released. "We're going to have a six pounder party."
