My dd was much more able to sit still at that age. But that could be temperamental too. We went to the school's fall festival last week with some friends of ours, and all three of our children were bouncing around and talking a million miles an hour, while both their children were quiet and hung back a little. Just different personalities!
Yeah, this is a temperamental/personality thing, not a gender thing. My younger daughter is much like your son. She is constantly active, hence the energy smilie as part of her description.
