Two of the world's longest-surviving octuplets are home from the hospital.

Nadya Suleman arrived at her new 2,500-square-foot home in La Habra, Calif., with Noah Angel (Baby A) -- 5 lbs 13 oz -- and Isaiah Angel (Baby C) -- 5 lbs. Both infants, who are able to bottle feed, are gaining weight and able to maintain their body temperature.

The homecoming came Tuesday night as dozens of neighbors and media gathered outside the octuplets' new home in La Habra, about 25 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Upset neighbors made it clear to anyone who would listen that the media was overwhelming their neighborhood.

Radaronline showed video inside the home after the babies' arrival.

The first set of octuplets was supposed to come home on Monday, but hospital social workers would not release the brood because they said their home was not ready. The social workers said Suleman needed to install CO-2 detectors and have the electric company inspect the house.

Two of the infants were released after social workers signed off on the upgrades to the four-bedroom, three-bath home. The rest of the octuplets are to be gradually released from the hospital.

The octuplets, who were born Jan. 26 in Southern California to 33-year-old Suleman, a divorced, unemployed mother who already had six children, will have round the clock care from Angels in Waiting, a charity group.

The babies had been in the hospital for several weeks after being born nine weeks premature.

Suleman has said all 14 children were conceived through in vitro fertilization.
