Is it only my little guy that just never wants to sleep?

We have seriously had the same quiet bedtime routine since he's three months old. He's now 2 1/2, and his sleep pattern is never the same. He naps only about 1-2 hours per day. He wakes up at least twice in the middle of the night. He's looking for me. While he won't get out of his bed, and I won't put him in mine, he just needs the comfort of knowing i'm there. In the meantime, I get very broken sleep, and I'm physically exhausted (not to mention look like crap!). The funny thing is -- i know he's not getting enough sleep, but he's a happy kid otherwise! Is anyone going thru something similar with their children? Please tell me I'm not alone!
