Perfect!  Thanks so much.  The shots indoors and outdoors where he is more still are really nice.  Clear, crisp with great color.  Just took a few as he was walking around with an Oreo shoved in his mouth and I was trying to get a good shot...

I will try your advice as I'm sure that's the solution.

There will be little to no difference if you were using a DSLR under those conditions. Bounce flash should work really well. If you haven't already, and don't mind the cost (not overly expensive) HVL-20 can serve as an all purpose flash. My NEX-3 can't support it (no hotshoe) but it is a fixture no my A55 when shooting indoors and used pretty much always for bounce. I almost never use built-in flash on my A55 (and when I do, I use a diffuser, another cheaper option for you but bounce works better).
