Your baby's weight is perefct for her age, in fact her weight is exactly on the average for a baby girl of 9 months. So there is no need for you to be concerned.

Like Lokes said, all kids are different, my son is 7 months and he weighs 8.6...

You dont have to worry as long as she eats ok and healthy!

I am sure that is not underweight. We all have different bone structures. I think you should' ve been worried if she was still 6kilo' s. My son is 8mnths and he is weighing something like 11.5kg. He is overweight and can' t do anything for 8mnths. Can' t crawl, can' t sit and is just very lazy for 8months. So I don' t think you have anything to worry about.

As long as she is healthy and active.

Take care
