Recommendations for 50mm on APS-C sensor? (re: 1.6x crop factor, etc)

Thanks for all of the recommendations.

The Canon 35mm f/2 does look nice but I'd be worried about the f/2 versus the f/1.4 on the Sigma.

The main purpose of the lens will be for indoor (low light) pictures of my son (8 months old). I do have a Canon 430EX II flash but I'm still learning about the camera (and SLR photography in-general) and it seems like not having to use the flash produces better pictures, etc.
