It sounds like typical rebalancing to me except you are rebalancing with new money rather that moving money from one fund to another. Rebalancing with new money should be the first choice for anyone and an annual rebalance is certainly reasonable. And, yes, you are buying low and eventually selling high which is one of the advantages of rebalancing.
I might have other thoughts on your asset allocation, but, yours is certainly reasonable.
