Partly it helps them to know that you really always are available (they don't have to keep checking) and partly it makes them come over when they really are 100% ready for cuddle down time.
Maybe that's the problem, I'm not always available as I work full time. This behaviour did start after I was home over the holidays, so maybe she does just need the comfort more than anything.
