How to identify self-sown alyssum seedlings?

Portage, MI(Zone 5b)

Last year I planted some annual alyssum hoping they would self-sow in my garden. Now I realize I don't know how to identify the seedlings, and am hoping someone might be able to post a photo. I can identify lunaria, myosotis, larkspur, nigella, and cleome seedlings (and quite a few weed seedlings!) which come up in my garden, but this is my first experience with Lobularia maritima in the garden.

Also, I really don't know how far along the annual alyssum seedlings should be by now in Zone 5b. Nigellas are about 2 inches, larkspurs are up 2 to 5 inches, Lunaria are up 3 to 5 inches, Cleome are just now appearing and are about 1 inch or less, and Myosotis are at about 0.5 inch or less.

Much obliged,

Tiny is all I can say! I have some pix of the purple one in my XD card. I will post when I can get them put on CD.
