Everyone is suggesting the Fuji and Viltrox options around 35-50mm. These are all good options, but let me throw in a wild card: Mitakon 35mm f/.95 (mark 2)

If you're okay with manual focus, and you're working with available light, this lens is lovely. When I take my time and focus, f/.95 is useable. Things get sharper quickly stopping down, but .95 is quite nice for portraits - it's not unsharp, but glowy and pleasant.

Problem is after 3 or 4 months when their heads start to move a lot.

Even worst after 10 month when they start to move.

And its not like you can tell them to pose….so manual focus for babys/kids is something i wouldn't recomend at all.
