It certainly sounds a bit on the light side, but whether it is normal or not depends on the child and whether she has always been a little on the smaller side. For instance, my daughter was that at about that age, but she was a 5lb born baby and was in the 3rd percentile for a LONG time, so for her, it was normal. However, if your baby was born a 9 lb baby, I'd be concerned.
