Can I legally change a executor on my will myself in CT?
I have named both of my adult children as co executors on my will. I have decided it would be better to just name the one child who is quite organized take on this task and she has agreed agreed to do it. Do I need an attorney to do this or can I do this on my own? Thank you!

You can execute something known as a codicil, and it would change an original term in your Last Will.
An alternative is to start all over and create a whole new Last Will. Either way, it's best to consult with an attorney so that it's done correctly. Such a procedure should not be expensive.
I recommend you have an attorney make the change for you. In order to change your will you need to follow a formal procedure to make it effective. If you try to do it yourself, it may not be accepted by the court and could be deemed a revocation of your current will if not done correctly.
The above answer does not create an attorney/client relationship. No legal answer can be relied upon without meeting with a licensed attorney and the attorney obtaining the complete facts and examining the applicable documents.
