Congrats on the kid. I'm in the same spot myself (7 mo). I decided to set up a DRIP and go with VGRO for the first few years. Assuming interest rates increase I will then buy a combination of VBAL and VCNS gradually over time to up the % bonds. If the rates don't increase then I'll likely just keep with VGRO.
