I was looking under the hood to figure out where the annoying rattle noise is coming from and my wife was at the steering. I asked her to shift the gears from P to D and R to hear the rattle. At the same time I noticed that the whole engine moving up and down for about 1/4 inch while shifting gears. Is this normal? I have only 15,000 miles on the odometer.

Sounds like normal give in the mounts. If you didn't have that, then could you imagine the vibrations you would get.

You could either go with a drivetrain stabilizer bar (DTS) bar which reduces drivetrain movement everytime you shift (which I have and love) or you can upgrade your motor mounts.
The bonus of the DTS bar is it also acts as a lower tie bar
