It depends on a couple of things. First, how quickly the dealer placed the order and if they're grouping it with other orders. Second, if the bike is not in stock in your size, you'll be waiting for it to be made, then shipped on the proverbial slow boat from China.
Going by the size, I'm guessing the latter of these two.
A friend ordered a 44 cm Bianchi in early February last year, and got it in mid-May. Once it was on the boat, the LBS was able to keep her updated on delivery time. Before that it was just "in the queue".
Edit: Doesn't change the fact that it's frustrating.
