From my experience, an active infant leads to an active toddler, etc. Boys by nature are more active (trust me...I have 3). But that isn't a bad thing. Hyperactive has such a negative connotation and is almost always linked to boys. I watched a wonderful documentary about boys (Raising Cain) and it really opened my eyes as to how boys are wired differently than girls. I love my boys and their high levels of energy can exhaust me, but I get to experience a whole new side to me that I didn't even know was there. I am a very involved mama and don't shy away from boy stuff. If my sons want me to play football with them, then I play football with them. Right now, your son is just learning to experience the world in a whole new way, so enjoy his excitement at life and things we take for granted. Take this as an opportunity for you and your husband to lead a more active lifestyle.
