The baby is one today. She has two words: "hi" and "uh-oh."

"Uh-oh" is my favorite for it signifies result (I just did something naughty), ongoing action (I'm doing something naughty) and, best of all, intention (I'm thinking about doing something naughty).

This third, I'm thinking about doing something naughty, is supremely useful. I can turn my head or leave the room, hear an "uh-oh!" and rush to prevent the next small disaster.

Uh-oh was always one of my favorites...until they got older.

Looks like "uh-oh" will soon have another meaning: summon Mommy!
