New to the D500, Lens Question, please help this Newbie

So I decided to get the D500 and Kit Lens since it was on sale for $2148.00 and Best Buy Matched amazon. Great deal I hope.

I did break down and get the Tamron 70-200 f2.8 G2 for $1299 but the thing is a tank, wow it is huge.

The pictures I do of my daughter are very nice. But mostly I am in 70mm-90mm range. I was thinking of returning it for a Nikon 85mm f1.8 since I am basically doing just portraiture with it. I be missing the OIS, will that matter?  I can always spend another 250 and get the Tamron 85 f1.8 with OIS. Or am I over thinking this whole thing.

My Lens selection is this

35mm f1.8 DX

Nikon 16-80 2.8-4 N (Kit)

Tamron 70-200 G2 F2.8
