That makes 12 children now in Nadya Suleman's La Habra home, with two babies still waiting to be released.

Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center announced that Makai and Jeremiah went home Thursday night, exactly two months after their historic births. They join their six older siblings and four infants at the family's new home.

Makai weighs 5 pounds, 5 ounces, and Jeremiah weighs 5 pounds, 14 ounces.

Two babies remain in Kaiser's neonatal intensive care unit. The octuplets were born nine weeks premature on Jan. 26.

The first pair to arrive home were greeted by a chaotic crush of reporters and photographers in the quiet suburban cul-de-sac on March 17.
