Proper weight and length for 9 month old baby boy

My son is 9 months old today and he weighs 9.8kg and is 70 cm tall. Is this normal? He is also very advanced for his age as he is already talking is this also normal?

The average weight for a baby boy of 9 months is 8.9kg;length 72 cm.Your son's weight is above average, while his length is slightly below the average. Talking at 9 months is very early.This usually only starts at around 13 months.
