This beauty is one of three species from genus Plestiodon. All juvenile lizards of this species look similar. You would need to either look at the scales under the tail and/or the scales on the upper lip to get a species.

Cryptoblepharus egeriae (Blue-tailed Skink) is an Australian species and it is not found in North America. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue-taile...

Hope this helps! This spotting should be moved to the Reptiles section.
