if you buy an 18-2xx lens, it kinda makes the 18-55 unnecessary. Bear in mind that the 18-55 is very light. It MAY still be useful when you don't want to carry a heavy lens around.
There are a number of zoom lenses (from Sony and 3rd party manufacturers) with focal range about 70-300mm. Can complement your 18-55 nicely.
That would be my suggested option.
Have never been a fan of the 18-2xx "superzoom" lens.

If you get the new sigma with the OSS, you can turn off the SteadyShot in your A55 and thus get a lot longer video shooting too.

I find these "super-zoom" very versatile but their image quality is generally disappointing at large aperture.
