Xorg memory usage

I have been noticing my ram usage increasing recently.
I took a screen shot with the resources monitor running showing 
processes and memory usage and I compared it to my current usage after 
rebooting. After a few days Xorg goes from 28 to around 90mb. While not 
a lot, it does seem a bit excessive.

Nautilus goes from around 8 to 38mb.

Is this normal?
