Sorry, but satisfying your needs and wants ended the day your son was born, so not wanting to re-invest in another bike in 1-2 years doesn't come up on the radar. Start small and trade up. It's better than getting hurt. (JMO).
I think you'd be fine on a 450, but why not look for a good used 250f and take it from there?
All the bikes you listed are MX bikes except the XCF, and they are all great bikes. The MX bikes are going to be tougher to ride on the trails especially with your wife being on the KLX. There is no one perfect bike so you need to make some decisions about what your main objective is.
Well, I'm glad you went with a 250 to start. :).
I'm not a huge fan of CL marky, but why do you think it's a scam? That's a great deal at $6k and as long as the seller has the paperwork (he should if he bought it new in July of 2012), the buyer should be fine.
I admit - why do all those mods and only ride it for 10 hours does warrant a question or two, but as long as the seller has an explanation, it looks like a good deal. Okay, so almost too good. Okay, so maybe the buyer needs to ask quite a few questions, but there are deals out there.
