Need Confirmation or Additional Help!
Hello, We loved and appreciated the response that we got regarding the pictures I uploaded!! (especially the identification of my cousin the football player which was obviously an accident in loading lol) but now I’m having more of those plants pop up and the information you guys gave us -- we googled images and I don’t think it’s that type of plant. I took some, hopefully better photos a little closer up, and hoping to get either a confirmation or a new answer as to what these little guys are growing in my windowsill garden. I loaded the pictures in order from when the first sprout pops up with partial seed shell still on the plant to where it gets taller and develops a fuzzy interior. Thanks Again! Love your site! 🙏🏻

If you have a succulent or cactus nearby, then that could be the culprit. Unfortunately, it resembles many, many plant seedlings. It will be hard to pin down until it grows some.
Keep an eye on it until you see anything else happen. Likely, it will continue on slowly if it is a succulent, or cactus.
It is very difficult to ID a seedling this young. I will go out on a limb and suggest pokeweed, Phylotacca americana, due to the slightly pinkish stem. Birds eat the berries and the seeds end up anywhere and everywhere. Here are some good pictures of pokeweed seedlings: https://www.oardc.ohio-state.edu/weedguide/single_weed.php?id=112
