I started out counting on my fingers and showing him how to count to 10 like that. Now, we are doing the magnetic letters and numbers on the fridge! I didn't think either one of my kids would like it so much but they do!

For numbers, you do basically the same thing. Find books that teach the numbers, and just read them to him, and each time you say the number, point to it. After a while, he'll be able to say the numbers himself.

My response doesn't fit into this age category~ I like Waldorf teaching. It's so peaceful, beautiful, creative!
Children study these things is school when they're older (they might already be familiar with them, though), not at 1-2 years.
