How do I teach my kitty not to be a smartass, and keep me up until all hours of the night?

Our 2 year old cat, Cosette (obligatory photos
) has this lovely habit of petting/poking me every morning about 4am. She's definitely not starving; if I do feed her at 4am, she's back at 4:05, petting my forehead and poking me in the neck. Basically, she just wants to play.
I can sometimes
calm her down by saying, "Cosette, too early" or "go to sleep", and she'll sleep next to me for fifteen or twenty minutes before the petting and poking begins again. It's almost as if she's laughing at me.
She won't do this to my partner, at all. She lets him sleep.
