When she'd bite me I'd squirt her with a water bottle to make her get off me, then I'd give her a toy. Now 90% of the time she brings me a toy when she wants to play. Even when she gets a bit rough with the cat and we tell her to leave him alone, she'll go get a toy and bring it to him lol it's kind of sad, yet cute.|

Voices should be low and authoritative around the dog, not squeaky. Have toys on hand to engage the dog, make everything fun, and keep the kids supervised when interacting until the puppy is much older.

Welcome to GSD puppies!! They are stinkers!!! What your pup is doing us very common. I would have your girls get more involved in his house manners training. Have them feed him, do basic commands and the like. Teach your girls how to handle him.
It takes some pups many many months to stop this, unfortunately they keep growing, so best to get your girls involved in his training. He will learn to look to them for direction and they can learn the appropriate way to redirect and correct if needed.

I was laying on the couch eyes closed and the dog just decides to charge you - well you need to put your arm up and having corner of your eye open - to keep an eye on the dog it's not happening so much anymore -- after she ran into my arm a few times...|

Yes with distraction, it works for just a sec. It's like he is trying to dominate them.
Right now just basic obedience.
