It's at last one big, happy Duggar family – emphasis on big.
Josie, the 19th child born to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, returned to their busy house last week after spending most of the first six months of her life in a neonatal intensive care unit where she fought for her life after being born dangerously premature.
Although the baby was released from Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock on June 3, her homecoming was delayed because 12 of her siblings got the chicken pox and had to be separated from her. Josie spent three weeks with her mother in a rental house near the hospital until the other children recovered back home with dad.
Finally, on June 25, mother and child made the over 200-mile road trip from Little Rock to Tontitown, Ark., and were met by streamers, hand-made "Welcome Home" banners, old Christmas decorations – and 17 of Josie's siblings (oldest son Josh lives on his own with his wife and baby).

Former tennis great Jennifer Capriati is in trouble again.
Her family says she's recovering this morning after an accidental drug overdose.
As a teen, Capriati rose quickly rose through the ranks, capturing a gold medal at the 1992 Olympics. But after being arrested for shoplifting and marijuana possession a year later, her career quickly derailed. And though she did rally a decade later to win three Grand Slam titles, she's struggled ever since.
On "The Early Show" Tuesday, Justin Gimelstob, a former tennis star and a friend of Capriati's, said he's heard from Jennifer's mother, who told him Jennifer is doing well physically and is resting.
Gimelstob said, "(Jennifer's mother is) a very religious woman. She said God is good, God is taking care of her. It's the tabloids that might need God's help.' So there's a little resentment there, but Jennifer's been through so much. You can never tell the collateral damage that being a child prodigy has on you."

Editor's note: Tonight Larry will talk to Former FBI Profiler Candice DeLong and Marc Klaas about the case that has the country wondering, "What happened to Kyron Horman?"
By Eunice Oh
Terri Moulton Horman has been the subject of police attention and taken two polygraph tests, but the stepmom of missing Kyron Horman has the support of his family members, who spoke out on the network morning shows Friday.
"I believe she's committed, as the rest of our family is, to finding Kyron," her husband Kaine Horman, told The Early Show.
"The investigators are working with her and with us to help find him," he said as his ex-wife and the second-grader's mother, Desiree Young, nodded her head in agreement.
Though the official search has been called off, authorities are still tracking down more than 2,500 leads and tips, according to Young.
"Honestly I'm a little scared at this point," she told the Today show Friday. "Three weeks is a long time and we need to bring him home. [I'm] scared in the sense that he's not at home where we know he's safe."
On Good Morning America, Young said she can't think of a reason why her son has not been seen since June 4.
"It's like a portal opened up in the school and Kyron just vanished into it," she said. "It's a mystery."
"[Kyron]," she adds, "is very timid and shy. He also can't see very well so he tends to stick very close to home. He doesn't go outside a certain parameter. He's not an adventurous child so he doesn't like to wander off."

Can "The Office" survive without Steve Carell? Leave your thoughts here.
By Kristin Dos Santos
If you happen to see Steve Carell in the next few days, knock him over the head, will ya? Out of love? 'Cause clearly his brain has gotten all jumbly.
One of TV's best comedic actors of all time has just confirmed to us that he is indeed leaving The Office this May—argh!—and get this, seems to think no one will care...
E! News hit the red carpet for Steve's new movie Despicable Me last night, and Steve made it clear he was not joking when he told BBC Radio he would leave The Office after the coming 2010-2011 season.
"I just think it's time," Steve told our Kristina Guerrero. "I want to fulfill my contract. When I first signed on I had a contract for seven seasons, and this coming year is my seventh. I just thought it was time for my character to go."
But according to Steve, The Office could go on without him. "It doesn't certainly mean the end of the show. I think it's just a dynamic change to the show, which could be a good thing, actually. Add some new life and some new energy...I see it as a positive in general for the show."
