Long wait for Green Card after entry

Hello! I am a USC who sponsored my husband (Irish) for an IR-1 visa. We were living in the EU when we applied/through processing. He was approved in March 2018 and we arrived in Chicago July 14, 2018. He received the proper stamp in his passport when processed at the border (i-551 maybe?) and we paid the immigrant fee before leaving the EU. I know he can work/travel freely on his stamp, but having the actual card would be a comfort. Has anyone else had such long delays? The USCIS portal sent me to the Texas Service Center, which never got back to us. We were initially told we would receive the card in a few weeks, but it's now been 3.5 months. 

Many thanks!
