A very common definition of polyamory is the one provided by Wikipedia:
"Polyamory (from Greek πολύ [poly, meaning many or several] and Latin amor [literally “love”]) is the desire, practice, or acceptance of having more than one loving, intimate relationship at a time with the full knowledge and consent of everyone involved."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyamory
Since you are clearly accepting of the polyamory of your partner, by this definition you are poly. Definitions do vary, however.

Do you call yourself monogamous because you don't believe you could have two lovers at the same time?
I call myself poly because I am open to having additional lovers. And my partner of 12 years is poly for the same reason. We have a poly ethos
, as it may be called, between us. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/ethos
But while we're both of the poly ethos, neither of us has an additional lover, so we're otherwise a garden variety couple at the moment.
