How Big?

I just brought home a 9-week-old female Maltese. She is the sweetest little girl I've ever met. However, I have two questions. 1. She is quite a bit bigger than her sister, and she is quite the little porker, how can I estimate how big she will get? Will she be half her grown size by 5-6 months? 2. Today is the third day she has been with me. I can't quite get her to eat on her own yet. She takes a couple of morsels of food from my hand, but she will not eat any off a saucer or dish. What can I do to get her to start eating? By her size right now it doesn't appear as though she's had any trouble eating up till now. Thanks for any suggestions offered.
