Help me ID this weed pls?

Hello!
Just wondering if someone has any insight on what type of weed this is. Just transplanted it to a separate pot since it may be of good use to the garden later or even edible.
BTW, the last pic is a different one I couldn't identify either! I'm a complete newb hahaha.

Thanks a lot in advance to everyone who takes a look!

The last picture looks like Goosefoot. Lamb's Quarter.

A very tasty salad green. Please properly identify before eating.

The first picture maybe Sunflower?

Hmm, It does look like Young Sunflower although I'm not very sure, there isn't any sunflower nearby so I'm not sure who could be the culprit. As for the last one, it does like lamb's Quarter!
I guess well get the answer after a couple of weeks! Thank you very much for the reply!

It doesn't look like Sunflower to me. But I have seen this same weed on my property too.

If you pull one up any seed shell hanging from the root?

Do you have a bird feeder?

I didn't notice any shell after I made the transplant to a different pot. I had this plant and suddenly noticed this little "guests" growing in the pot! As for the bird feeder, never had one but I'm starting to believe my neighbor had some sunflowers before i moved out!
