Who is this cute little visitor ? ID help please.

Background: We're in Cocoa Beach, FL, zone 9b/10, coastal. I have nothing else that resembles it nearby. I'll be happy to answer other questions about it to get an answer. It's growing in a pot that is serving as a nursery for a baby fishtail palm, but if it's something interesting I'll get it a nursery of its own.

Thank you in advance !

It rather looks like a mimosa seedling. They're pretty invasive trees, though we have a few that we love because they offer perfect shade for sitting under during the summer and when the leaves drop off in the winter, we get the sun.

We also have a whole lot more that we don't love that grow all over the place. I find seedlings in my gardens & outdoor pots all the time.
