Asking specific questions about milestones is not a smart idea. You'll waste too much time on unnecessary details, as the Peds cases are usually common complaints like fever, diarrhea or "not being herself/himself".

As part of the HPI, ask about any growth and developmental abnormalities and you can clarify if previous well baby visits were normal. Asking about last check up is also a must. I wouldn't concern myself with going into specific gross motor/fine motor/social & language milestones.
