You would need to file a motion for modification of custody and request the specific modifications to the custody order that you mentioned. Either one of you can initiate filing the motion. If you contact the clerk's office at the courthouse where your custody order was previously processed, they should be able to provide you with the packet of forms for filing the motion for modification. The other parent would then have an opportunity to file a response, which they can do stating that they agree with the proposed modifications. At hearing date should then be scheduled at which time the judge should sign off on the modification request and issue an updated custody order. Since both parents are in agreement that really is not any need for the court to substantively intervene in this decision. That means that you should not have much difficulty getting the modification granted, but you would need to file the motion for modification to initiate this process.

I hope that information helps! Let me know if you still have any questions about this. I'm here to help.
