two and a bit

I came across the following paragraph in one of the extracts of an advanced learner of English book

"When Sam was two and a bit, he began to use one of the living room walls, which was unfortunately white at the time, as a drawing surface. It was always the same wall and he appeared to be attempting pictures, as weel as showing a definite sense of colour."

I can´t make out what the expression two and a bit means in this context.

Could anyone explain it to me?

Thank you for your answers

    Yes, 'a bit' means 'a little' (more).

    People might also say, 'I'll be with you in a bit' (meaning 'in a little while').
