You do what is neccesary for the puppy.
You won't get much sleep for the first few weeks, but at least it's warmer now than a couple of months ago.
Make sure the crate is small enough so she won't go in it. She'll still go for a short while until she understands that she has to be near or in it in her crate if she does. It usually clicks with GSD's not to mess in their crates. Every dog is different regarding how long they are able to hold it, but very young pups don't hold it well at all. Three or four months and bladder control greatly improves.
You'll be playing a lot, a training, or actually teaching the puppy what to do and not to do when this young.
Puppies eat, sleep, play, and poop at this age and not much else. The great part is you get to spend every waking hour with her to form the bond that you need to have with your dog.
