Problem weed sprouting in new sod

Asked October 10, 2017, 9:29 PM EDT

I had sod laid over an area that used to be a mulch bed approximately 4 days ago. This weed started sprouting in my new sod. It has a 4-5" stem with a small root that it easily pulled out and all of them have two leaves. It seems to be spreading. What is this weed and what is the best way to eradicate it?

We looked at your photos. This looks like it may be a type of morning glory and is an annual. Keep mowing it and let it go until spring to see what you may be dealing with.
