Weed Identification Help

I wanted to see if someone can help me identify this weed. I have looked all over and can't figure this one out. They are sprouting up all over the lawn and look like mini trees on their own.

I have tried hitting it with Momentum Q and haven't had much luck.

Thanks

It looks like thyme. Does it smell like it would be good with chicken or turkey?

Right Ryan. Its veronica (speedwell). It is a winter annual. Sprouts from seed in the fall. Big problem and blooms with tiny purple flowers in early spring. Dies (usually) when temps exceed 85.
However, it is very difficult to kill. Be sure to use wetting agent, and apply herbicide at the maximum allowed rate. A thorough treatment in the fall is a big help both October and November if you want to be sure.

I think you may be correct.

Thanks. I used a wetting agent when I did the broadcast spray last weekend. I will wait 2 weeks and try to hit it again using the spot spray rate.

Hopefully the weather picks up and helps me out as well.
