There are 230 new emojis coming out this year, the Unicode Consortium announced Tuesday.

That means we'll soon be getting a whole bunch of useful additions, including waffles, a sloth, and an axe.

They're also getting more diverse, with new emojis for mixed-race couples and a ton depicting various disabilities.
