Which lens would you keep for a 7D?

I just got a 7D today to retire my XSI. I'm looking at 5 lenses and I need to decide which to keep and to regain a few coins from the 7d purchase.

18-200 F3.5
28-135 F3.5 (this is the kit lens)
17-55 F2.8 (the most expensive of the pack)
60mm F2.8
50mm F1.8 (nifty fifty)

At the moment, the 17-55mm is a no brainer.

I can sell the 18-200 and get another telephoto lens but the 70-200 f2.8 is pretty expensive. What other options do I have here?

I'm debating between the 60 F2.8 and the 50mm f1.8 my wife likes the 50mm cause it's light and she was able to take great photos with it using the XSI.

Or sell both and get a 50mm F1.4 and would probably still be ahead

I'm doing this primarily to take photos and video of my expected baby in a few months. But at the same time, I enjoy nice photos and like it better when I get to brag about it I would call myself an intermediate hobbyist and don't think I'll ever become pro.
