Thanks everyone. I think I'll go with a prime for now and get a flash later on. I've read about flash and newborns so I'd like to have something that will work with babies too.

I hope you get great pictures of your treasure with it
With a flashgun you could bounce the light though... well just my opinion but a proper flash is just a much more significant addition to your kit than another lens. I used a 1.4 lens for this very purpose and with it I got less noise and a little quicker shutter, but the noise was still there and the shutter still wasn't very fast. When I started using a flash I got base iso, zero motion blur plus the ability to get anything more than either eye in focus.
