"Por" and "para" have NOTHING to do with temporary and permanent. You have written:

I have a lot of love for my little girl. In her opinion, I am crazy.

If you want to write "I am crazy for her", you must write "Estoy loco por ella" (I am crazy because of her".

Remember: "por" is used to give reasons, to state a "because" (the word "because" is not "PORque" by accident)

Todo lo que tengo es por mi cariñito.

All I have is because of my darling.

Todo mi amor es para mi novia.

All my love is for my girl.

Tengo mucho amor para mi chiquita. Soy loco para ella.

I have a lot of love toward my little girl.

Soy loco para ella.

She thinks, that I am crazy

Estoy loco por ella,estoy trastornado por ella

I am nuts for her

crazy for her

Disclaimer.... I could be wrong

If we're taking a poll, then I agree with you. It could be either depening on further context.
I'm crazy about her. Estoy loco por ella.
According to her, I'm crazy. Para ella, estoy loco o estoy loco para ella. (awkward construction, but who says the author is a grammarian.)

Tengo mucho amor por mi chiquita. Estoy loco por ella.

Let's see what the others have to say.

I also believe "por" is the correct choice here. Use "por" when feelings are involved.
