Popping up in lawn, front & back
I suspect it's from seeds spreading through regular mowing.

What is it and how can I get it under control

Yes, looks like purslane.

After a good rain or after watering you can yank it out by the roots. Mowing more often might help keep it in check.

It's edible, if you're into experimenting.
