First menses usually occurs 2-3 years after you can feel a breast bud under her mid areola. You should discuss any related issues with her regular doc.

Your description is indicative of normal breast development for her age (Tanner stage II). She has not developed true pubic hair yet (Tanner stage I). Most girls experience menarche at Tanner stage III or IV.
