60D Keep it or Upgrade?

Hi there DPreviewers. Here is my rig:

  • 60D

  • Kit Lens (18-135)

  • Canon 50mm F1.8 (Nifty 50, Fantastic Plastic)

  • Canon 100mm F2

  • Interfit Studio kit

I love taking pictures of my 18mo old and taking video using the DSLR. I also love taking picture when we travel places and doing portrait stuff for friends and family. I would love to be a headshot photographer some day ... but I need more practice before I could make that leap.

Recently I sold some other gear and picked up a great video tripod I love now. I am also in the market for a photo tripod (thinking feisol or Gitzo).

Mainly though ... here I am 2 years into taking pictures and video and am thinking ... should I just sell off everything and buy new stuff? Or should I wait for the 'next big thing' in terms of Canon cameras?

Feeling a little lost on direction and would greatly benefit from someone who has successfully stepped over that line from 'I think I like this hobby' to 'I love this hobby' and had similar equipment woes.
