Torque converter operation normal?

Question for those of you with the V6. At lower speeds, do you feel the torque converter lock alot? When I turn a corner and give it moderate accelleration, the RPMs will climb, then I feel the TC lock and the RPMs drop, then climb again and the transmission shifts. This happens when I don't come to a complete stop so the trans is in 2 or 3 gear. At first I thought the engine was bogging down like the AFR was too rich, but then paid more attention. I didn't notice this behavior till after the first couple weeks of owning it.
