Two ideas come to mind. Not to insult you, but are you sure you have the calipers on the correct side of the car? That is, with the bleed screws at the top of the caliper? I was brain-dead once & put the left caliper on the right side of the car before I realized what I was doing. That will definitely give you that spongy pedal.

Another thing that happened to me with another car, giving the same symptoms you describe, was a semi-clogged vacuum valve. This is the valve that takes vacuum from the engine & uses it in the brake booster. When my Alfa had this problem, it drove the shop nuts until the clogged vacuum valve was discovered.
