I think at 7.30 she is ready to start her day and frustrated that you are not which is why she is barking then and 4 months is very young to be expecting her to settle for a lay in.

Crate training is all about the pup being happy in the crate and building up time gradually and it sounds like you are maybe rushing her a little and expecting too much of her in terms of settling in the crate.

What is her daily routine like in terms of walks, training, and mental enrichment?

How much crate time does she get versus free time? It sounds like she is not particularly happy in the crate and at 4 months she needs lots of input to learn what sounds are normal and can be ignored

That all sounds good but she will definitely want up and about at 7.30am after 9 or 10 hours especially as she is then going to need a short spell of crating for the morning - as she gets older things will be more relaxed but for now I think up and about at 7.30 is going to be the order of the day!
