Is "Uh-oh" a word?

So this week Ethan has not only just repeated the noise "Uh-oh" but used it as an actual expression. On Wednesday he threw a toy out of the tub and then said, "Uh-oh!" and then today while he was eating lunch he dropped his cup and said it again. Then, just to prove he knew what he was doing (and saying) he held his cup out over the side of his tray, said "Uh-oh!" and then dropped it. Usually this infuriates me, but this time he was too cute for me to be mad at him.

Anyway, what are your thoughts does "Uh-oh" count as a first word? Feel free to cast your vote on the right.

I wondered what age that started dropping things on purpose. Now I know.

Absolutely it counts!!! Yea for little Ethan!!! Elizabeth's first word was "dog"--go figure. "Mommy" didn't come until much, much, much later. Shows where I fall in the pecking order, I guess.
