I would also suggest OP to keep what you have and adding lenses

Somewhat like you, I only photographing my daughter and some family events, that’s the only reason I got DSLR and do not want to (and can not) get rid of it. I also want to have the DSLR with me as much as possible, so the weight of full frame (and lens) stops me, for mirroless , the AF and lens availability (and appreciation for used ) stops me go light. Ever since I have swapped, collected my main setup below, I simply loose the interest to swap/upgrade

T4i + 18-135 STM , great for walkaround, only lens need for outdoor and vacations. I had 24-105 before, 18-135 STM is on par with it (or so close to it) and have extra reach as well as light weight.

Sigma 30 mm f1.4 - in door lens. Simply amazing result. With it and a bounce flash, I doubt there is much PQ difference from a 2x price full frame+lens setup

Sigma 70-200 f2.8 OS - use it only once a while, most of the time it is in the box, but it is needed for dance recital, school concert, indoor sports. That’s kids moment you want to capture for memory, and 200mm on 1.6x crop is needed. 200mm on a full frame doesn't provide enough of reach for most of the time ( well you can crop it, some people would debate )

Keep using what you have; you're doing fine with what you need to shoot right now and you're happy with the images and videos you have right now, only upgrade/switch if those become not good for you anymore...get to know your setup completely first before moving on if it becomes inadeqaute.

What did you end up doing?

Coming from a 5D2 and d700 over the last couple years, I was kicking around a 6d for iq but its on the large size to pack around, or just getting a NEX and a couple primes(even though I told myself years ago I would never own a crop as a primary)... Then I had the chance to play with the A7.... SOLD, SOLD, SOLD!!! Not the fastest focus but the ability to get $15 adapters and use amazing old glass I can snag off craigslist for dirt cheap is just awesome. If anyone has the opportunity to spend a good amount of time with a a7 and a fast manual prime, you owe it to yourself to do so. Focus peaking with manual focus is a whole lot of fun.
