cold shift on 97 528i A/T

When the car is cold, I leave the drive way and it takes a long time to shift into 2nd gear and to 3rd. Is this normal for cold temps? It's the only car I have ever had do this. Once it's warm, normal shift returns.

This is not uncommon so dont worry, you could always change the ATF and filter, this will make a difference.
