Snapchat has had a great year in terms of reputation. And part of that is thanks to people creating funny pictures, like SNAPDAD. - photo by Herb Scribner
This year has been a big one for Snapchat.

Many originally saw the app as a problematic social media network and yes, there are some dangers that parents should be aware of but Snapchat has slowly transformed into a news aggregator and highly popular app for many Americans.

In fact, Snapchat became the third most popular social media app among millennials this year, with only Facebook and Instagram ahead of it, Business Insider reported. The app itself has a $16-$19 billion valuation, too.

Many millennials told Business Insider they enjoy the app because it allows people to share quick moments of their lives with others without too much negative feedback, and it gives users an outlet for funny pictures.

"I like sharing weird things I see when I'm out, videos of friends being funny, photos with text that I'll post as stories when I have news to share, or ugly selfies, one user told Business Insider. When you get ugly selfies from someone, that's how you know you're good friends."

Parents have even hopped on the Snapchat train. Ive written before about how moms and dads alike have used the app to stay in touch with their families.

But few have been more impressive than SNAPDAD.

SNAPDAD is the name of a Tumblr blog that features pictures of a baby boy, Felix, who has been transformed into various characters by his father, Lukas Costeur, a graphic designer from Belgium.

The reworked Snapchat photos, several of which you can see in the slideshow below, turn baby Felix into a variety of different characters from pop culture, politics and news events. Most of the snaps also have a witty and punny caption.

See some of the photos in the slideshow below. For more, visit BoredPandas report on the snaps and the Tumblr blog itself.
