Maybe he does.
Bettas do recognize people & have incredible eyesight for a fish. They also sleep at night. So, your little one may have just been a bit groggy if he was just waking up...maybe he's not a morning fish, lol.
Congrats on the new baby. It's so easy to fall in love with them & at their age they really bond with their care takers.
