What Lens do you use for your action photo's?

Recently I have been photographing my (just over) 1 year old in various settings. There was no issue until she became quite mobile. I took her to the park and wanted to get some nice shots of her waddling around and messing about.

I brought along my 18-200 VR, and while it did the trick, I started wondering if there was a better lens available for this type of shooting. Obviously she does not move like a cheetah but enough that I need some zoom to keep up and frame those spur of the moment shots. There are some things regarding the 18-200 that bother me (sometimes it just seems a little big, not a lot), and I will not get rid of it because it is quite versatile, but would like to know what others use in this setting. Thoughts?
