    Garret and Mary Ann are excited to introduce their first child Sofia Margaret Robles - the newest member of the Robles household in addition to their fur babies Bear and Luna (and Kiesha, that sadly the family misses so much).  Sofia currently attends daycare full time at James Cook University and will likely pursue a university degree of her choosing - but lots of play for now.
