I'm on a first-name basis with most of the common weeds growing in my garden, but while weeding this morning, I realized that I've never bothered to learn what this one is. It reminds me of lamb's quarters, but grows smaller, with a bit of a two-tone look to its leaves. Should be an easy one for some of you, I hope :-)

It's a kind of amaranthus I tip my hat to you.

Looks like a Chenopodium. Lamb's Quarters is on the right track.
