As Garfield once said "it is so obvious that rocks evolved from dogs."
Your puppy is smart enough to know even at his early age that crying in the middle of the night will get you to come to his rescue. I have an older dachshund that is doing the same thing. I found that putting a sheet over her crate for the night keeps her from waking as much. You may also try placing your puppy in a different room, or roping off a tiled area and using what are known as "Wee Pads" when you are ready to let him sleep out of the crate.
I know it is hard (both emotionally and on the ears) to hear him cry at night, but if you can make it though a night or two, then he should stop. For you, I can only recommend ear plugs or sleeping pills.
