ID my foreground plant?

Just got this foreground guy earlier this week, not 100 percent sure what it is and was hoping to look up some of its characteristics. I think it's baby tears (not dwarf baby tears which is HC) but I may be wrong. Can anyone help?

Much appreciated

Hemianthus micranthemoides was called as pearlweed in our lfs.

My day is better whenever I buy a new plant.
