Habit. Wakes up because he knows you'll come. Some people try "wake to sleep" that is, go in and "settle" him before he wakes up to in to interrupt the sleep cycle.

With DD2 I ignored it. DS1 was much louder, so I would go in and give him a drink of water, but not pick him up. He got bored after a while and stopped doing.
