85mm 1.8 vs 50mm 1.4

i currently own a 60D and canon 50mm 1.4, is there any significant difference in terms of IQ/bokeh quality if I get the 85mm 1.8?

I know sigma is better but it's currently out of my budget.

I will be using it mainly for taking portrait shot of my 3 months old daughter, I know 85mm might be a little bit long (esp indoor) but I am willing to make it work if it can give me better results.

So what do you guys think??
