Maybe its the sound like a Kooing, like a little baby would make?

What does Kooing mean in this context? Is Koo a word or something?

Cooing is making noises like a pigeon, or if a person is meant, it usually appears in the phrase billing and cooing which means talking or behaving in an amorous way: The love-birds were billing and cooing.

In context I think the writer meant "cooing".
