What lens would be best for a new photographer for taking pictures of family (babies, kids, humans) with a Pentax K-x 12.4MP Digital SLR with 2.7 inch LCD and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL? (Can you tell I just copied that from the receipt?)

Hello! I am a novice at digital photography, though in 2010 I bought a fancy camera -- the Pentax K-x 12.4MP Digital SLR with 2.7 inch LCD and 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL Lens (Red) as listed on Amazon.
The photos we've gotten from it have been good, but not great, a lot owing to our lack of skill. We really want to take excellent photographs and portraits of family, esp. kids. A family member who is a skilled photographer thought we needed a different lens from what came with the kit to do this well.
Do you agree? And if so, what kind? Or am I just trying to buy my way out of the problem rather than figure out what's going wrong?
