I don't think you can spend too much time with your puppy. They are pack animals, and genetically programmed to be part of a pack.
Though being part of a human pack, they do need to accept the fact that sometimes they have to be alone. Good so far that you crate at night.
I would start getting her used to being left alone a bit during the day too. Start by crating her for naps, or just because, at different times of the day, for different time periods.
Get her gradually used to being alone while you are gone - you can start with half an hour or so and build up. At this age she shouldn't be crated more than two or three hours at a time (outside of being crated overnight).
