One point is that a D600 needs more expensive lenses (FX). You should also calculate which lenses you will need...

It is the other way around.

Agree. Particularly when considering many of the lens releases of the past years, and how well they would fit for someone aiming at shooting images of their 1 year old kid. Nowadays FX gives more bang for the buck in terms of lenses and many everyday shooting situations. And that even without looking at equivalence in terms of DOF control and light gathering.

Combining lenses like the (new or fairly new) 18-35/3.5-4.5, 24-85/3.5-4.5, the 28/1.8, the 50/1.8, and the 85/1.8 with a D600 produces a (potential) kit which is hard to beat for any roughly equivalent DX kit, both in terms of actual price and in terms of photographic usefulness.

Had the OP predominately been a bird shooter then the story would have different though.
