Sounds like you are on the right track!
Puppies can be a challenge, and what they need changes month by month as they get older, so just keep your observations up and be ready to make adjustments frequently to your routines. If two walks a day is helping now, that's great. She may need something else added into her day in another month, such as a vigorous game of "chase the ball" or some such thing midday.
You'll get through this stage! I know it can be a bit scary, especially not knowing what is next!
As a general rule, if the puppy is totally out of hand, its an exercise/mental stimulation issue.
A tired puppy is usually pretty easy to have around.
A puppy with the "zoomies" NEEDS to run them off! You can't bottle it up.
