Yes, your wife needs to agree to committing the family income by signing an I-864A.
I recommend that you not use the EZ form ... it isn't all that easy.

Yes you need to include your wife's income since you filed a joint tax return and she lives in the same house hold. Do not file I-864EZ as i believe that is for single or no dependent.
