Sell 18-55 for 35 f2 and 90 f2?

Although there is significant hype around the 18-55, I just do not enjoy using it  on my XT2 (apart from maybe outside, walking around on holiday) can't really put my finger on why though!

At the moment I enjoy shooting action shots (dogs) ... but have a baby inbound in April so would obviously like to take more candid family shots (more than likely inside). I have a few options and was wondering what your thoughts were on the following.....

1) 35 f2 or 23 f2 - as a general walkaround / usually on my camera lens? Which one?

2) 90 f2 - as a dog walking lens?

I have also been considering the 50-140 again, which I used to own but sold due to the sheer size of it - you become very noticeable when you're wielding it around and family can become very conscious. As a caveat, I did own this before puppy and baby so used it mainly for indoor sports. Maybe I would find a new use for it now?

Really love the vintage lenses on xt2 particularly Helios 58mm f2 and Jupiter 11-A 135 f4-(yet find this is sometimes too long!)

Would really like to hear your thoughts
