    You could say Reveille-toi, followed by a term of endearment like chouchou, chéri, mon chéri, mon coeur, mon âme, mon trésor...

    If you say it playfully, I think you could say "réveille-toi, gros endormi". Or how about "marmotte" ? We say "dormir comme un marmotte". For some reason, we think of "marmottes" as a very sleepy animal so that would work here because it is also cute.

    I agree that « marmotte » as in : Réveille-toi, petite marmotte is cute.
    I actually suggested it myself in this similar thread. :)

    Edit - copied from the thread I just linked to :
    That might work here as well, if it's said playfully.
