Help deciding which lens combo to keep for D600

Hi Guys,

I've made the leap to the D600 FX world recently and need help deciding which lens to keep.

The lenses I picked up are the 24-85 kit lens, 50mm 1.8g, and 85mm 1.8g primes.

All 3 serve different purposes, but my wallet begs that I return one of the them...

Which combo would be a smarter choice for the long run? I have a kid on the day so will be doing lots of portaites and outdoors shots and shooting video as well.

A) keep 85mm and 50mm, sell 24-85 on ebay for $400 bucks

B) keep kit lens and 50mm, return the 85mm prime

C) Keep kit lens and 85mm, return the 50mm prime

D) Convince myself that I need all 3, and keep the all

I really like how the 85mm prime makes photos looks super sharp, and I feel like the VR in the kit lens might come in handy...but not sure its worth 400 bucks just so I can get VR.

Any help would be appreciated.
